Episode 10 - Casablanca

This week we have a Bogie in our sights as we tear apart one of the most acclaimed movies in Hollywood history, "Casablanca." This 1942 film noir "masterpiece" tends to stirrup the emotions in critics, but we feel that it's time to put it out to pasture.

Humphrey Bogart plays Rick Blaine, a broken-hearted nightclub owner who has given up on the world after being jilted by a woman he only knew for a week. Ingrid Bergman plays Ilsa, the prodigal lover who now needs Rick to help her husband escape Nazi peril.

We wonder why this movie thinks it's totally fine to have one of its hero characters, Captain Renault, extort sex from fleeing refugees. We also question how fugitives on the run have such extensive wardrobes and we opine on the equine countenance of the film's star.
