Fifth about The Seventh

All About Eve

All About Eve: this film is as good as it gets (Full disclosure: if you ever asked me my favorite movie, this is probably the answer your heard). A wonderful story about ambition in particular and human nature in general, it is perfectly written, from the biting dialogue (Thelma Ritter’s lines are without exception great, and her delivery, always pitch-perfect) to the mosaic-like struccture (the shifting narrators are a Mankiewicz hallmark). And don’t get me started with the acting: top to bottom perfect.
