Three sentence movie reviews: All About Eve

poster from:

I had conflated this movie with The Three Faces of Eve, and spent twenty minutes wondering when the multiple personalities would begin. Once I let that go, I settled in for a movie that’s called a classic for a reason. For a film that is, “all about the women and their men,” this manages not to fall too deeply into terrible 1950s-era stereotypes and also includes a ton of good lines.*

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

Also consider watching: Sunset Boulevard, A Star is Born (1937)

*”Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy night,” was a quote I had heard and a clip I had seen, but in context, it’s brilliant. And that is only one example.

And now for our scratch off poster:

Generally so-so in execution, both before and after.
Another one that I find just okay.
The fact that I don’t recognize this “after” image tells me perhaps I should review this movie. It’s only been 25+ years. But it was so slow.
