The Wildcat

The Wildcat ★★★★★

Comedy as it had never seen before; passionate and irrational romance as it had never been satirized before. Brilliant episodic hyperactivity addressed with a wonderful scenery and allegorical scenes, some of them intentional, some of them perhaps not. Lubitsch is an unrecognized master of the genre, and he was one of the first filmmakers (if not the first) to understand that one of the most effective sources of comedy is to mock our own flaws and senseless features.

99/100
