Shanghai Express

Shanghai Express ★★★★

Curtains go up and down, diaphanous drapes blow in the wind, gloves come off, identities are revealed, jewelry is fake, uniforms are illegitimate, liars and forgers all, but love requires faith, yadda, yadda...In conclusion, Von Sternberg, like Homer after him, asks, "Well, it's been nearly two hours. How do you feel?"

I dunno. I kinda want a cigarette.
