Nick's Review of Sabrina

    Sabrina (1954)

    There's love in the air in "Sabrina", but there's also more than an air of man's shittiness and uncertainty floating around in there, too. Which makes Billy Wilder's film more than just a strings-attached Hollywood love triangle. Not that it's not NOT that; everything's still ultimately wrapped up in a neat little bow, even if it stumbles some in pulling together all its sometimes surprisingly dark stops. Still it's wonderful how "Sabrina" starts out as one thing and then becomes another. In that regard it isn't unlike Steven Soderbergh's "Side Effects", and not just because Audrey Hepburn looks kind of like how Rooney Mara looks now and I'd sure dig fucking both of them, maybe once time travel and line-skipping technology is invented. Okay, but also not NOT because of that.
