An American in Paris
Even though the movie is more than 60 years old, there is a sense in this movie that it is offering us the ultimate and greatest value that cinema can offer. Every shot, every frame is a delicate feast for the senses. Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron are mesmerizing, and Oscar Levant offers brilliant music and comedic counterpoint. As lively as the entire movie is, what pushes it over the top is the lengthy closing dance-symphony with its drunken camera dancing as beautifully as the actors. This has been and will continue to be a tough movie to reckon with for any movie-maker seeking to break new ground.
