My favorite movie. I am a movie fan, I have a degree in TV/Film, I’ve beat Scene It on the Xbox, including getting 60 questions right in a row and I can name every Best Picture Winner since 1970. So I know a little about movies. Not everything, but enough. And I love Gone with the Wind.
The epic story is well-written, the dialogue is clever and poignant, the cinematography is GORGEOUS and the editing is artfully done.
Now Scarlett O’Hara is definately not the most likeable character, I’ll give you that and the movie is a bit long…but it’s an epic. I won’t say that this movie is for everyone, but it is a masterpiece. The other thing that should be mentioned is that the movie was made in 1939 and was one of the first full color films ever made. The technological and artistic feats were unprecedented.
If you haven’t seen it, I recommend it. Take a look at the composition of each shot, the rich color, and get transported in time. They don’t make ’em like this anymore.
