The Bridge on the River Kwai

David Lean Großbritannien, 1957

Phil Worfel's rating of the film Die Brücke am Kwai

Lean can do no wrong. The first time I watched this was with a bunch of college guys using reels and a projector in our dorm lounge. None of them had seen anything past 1980 and every cheered at the end. One of my favorite film experiences. Endlessly watchable.
