Quote du jour

“I admired Casablanca very much. I thought it was a very well put-together piece of schwarmerei*, with just the right measure of every ingredient and all that crap, and of course, tremendous luck, because they were making it up as they went along...The war flattened everybody’s taste in a very curious way. The best thing they could do in the movies was some delirious piece of fabrication like Casablanca. That was the great work of art, during the whole period of the war. Nothing else.”
-Orson Welles

*excessive enthusiasm or sentimentality
