#095: All That Heaven Allows

1955

Sophistication is something we all aspire to but tend to criticize in others, always wanting to promote ourselves while taking others down a peg.  One of the most annoying displays of coolness that drives me nuts is attending the screening of an old movie that inspires laughter from crowds of people looking to prove just how modern they are.  It’s one of my all-time pet peeves, and one classic example of my enduring it is the first time I went to see Douglas Sirk’s masterpiece at my local cinematheque.
