The dazzling masterpiece of a misunderstood filmmaker, 8 December 2001
10/10

This is not the "light-hearted" or "corny" film that many who haven't seen it perceive it as. It is very introspective, dark cinema, that, while classified as "fantasy", shines when it revels in the real, everyday delights of family, friends, and kindness.

There is no such thing as "CapraCorn". Capra was not a sugary sentimentalist. He was a great filmmaker who understood that life is beautiful, and just how precious the little moments that bind our existence together are.

This wonderful film, which, in my opinion, rivals Citizen Kane and Vertigo as the greatest American films ever made, is the lasting testament to a great talent, and a gift we can open every Christmas and never get tired of playing with.
