The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp Reviews
WATCH THIS MOVIE. Yeah, it's from the 40s, but even the anti-B&W crowd can't complain here; they whipped out the Technicolor. Gorgeous. Righteous.
But at the same time, like Renoir, they are critical in just the mannerisms and what goes on in those little moments of those in military. Full review to come, but suffice it to say this s a VERY British film, and damn proud of it good sir, may we have some tea?
The three central performances, by Roger Livesey, Deborah Kerr and Anton Walbrook, are remarkable and the Technicolor cinematography is beautiful. An absolute joy.
Powell and Pressburger were one of the greatest creative teams cinema ever had. The script is wonderful, with spiky, cynic dialogue, beautiful camera work by the great George Perinal (Black Narcissus) and top performances by Anton Walbrook and Deborah Kerr (I didn't much like lead actor Roger Livesey, except in the third part).
So it shows its age, but only just. This is grand filmaking that can rival Hollywood's biggest studios and it is impeccably written.
