Casablanca is like fine wine--the film only gets better with time.

Directed by Michael Curtiz, the whole production is so well balanced and so capably acted that it leaves a warmth and satisfaction in the memory of the picturegoer.

A film that should keep patrons interested for many weeks.

Where most other war-time melodramas have pinned their faith upon breakneck action, [Casablanca] derives its superb strength from the clashes and interplay of character [and] Michael Curtiz's highly disciplined handling of the suspense.
September 20, 2019
Casablanca is one of the most exciting melodramas the screen has ever produced. And it is mature, intelligently conceived, and, within the limits of melodrama, honest.

Moments of high tension and suspense punctuate the action with the most thrilling moment when in Rick's cafe a group of Free French men drown out Nazi voices by singing the "Marseillaise." Picture is acted with distinction by a fine cast.

February 16, 2019
There is less gunplay than is usual in such narratives, and the story is, indeed, no more than adequate, but any lack of excitement is more than balanced by excellent characterisation and quite brilliantly sensitive acting.

Stride after stride, scene after scene, moment after moment, everything comes together and everything is right.

A long and lively film, bulging with acting talent and breathless with its own dramatic momentum.

The support is strong. The atmosphere of Casablanca, the excellent camera work, the taut direction and the superb playing -- all these and an actionful script put this show up among the top ones.
December 7, 2017
What I love about Casablanca is that it defies categorization into any single genre. It's a war movie, a spy movie and a romantic drama, laced with bracing humor.
December 28, 2016
While the future was uncertain, the resolute characters of this exquisite wartime drama found peace through love and resistance.
October 3, 2015
Certainly a more accomplished cast of players cannot be imagined, and their direction by Michael Curtiz is inspired.
February 22, 2015
Curtiz's film is a classic for a reason -- it's crafted with the precision, detail and beauty of a Fabergé egg; the dialogue is hauntingly memorable and, in Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, it has one of the most magnetic screen pairings in history.
February 22, 2015
Knowing the story doesn't impair one's wonder at the undiminished magic of Casablanca.
