Gentleman's Agreement

Elia Kazan USA, 1947

jeffreyreeser's rating of the film Tabu der Gerechten

I'm not used to getting hit over the head by brilliance this quickly or hard. I'm not used to it. Fuck you Elia Kazan, fuck you, you are too talented, your films are too timely and perfect rendered. I don't know what you guys are talking about. This film is not dated or preachy. Anti-semitism is still alive and well today-- imagine what it was like in 1940's America. Shit was rough. This movie had balls. (9.7/10)
