It is on the long side, but I never really felt it. It moves along pretty nicely.

Fontaine is really what makes Rebecca work, because Olivier's character is really hard to like, but she plays that innocence so well, it's impossible not to empathize with her. And yeah, Sanders is tons of fun in that last act, as always.

Honestly, reminding me that Sanders is in that movie accounts for 50% of why I want to rewatch it.

Wonderful review, Junior. I only saw Rebecca a year ago, so also waited a long time to finally get to it. Love the Gothic meets Hitchcock atmosphere.

Also, I was late to the Respond thread, but wanted to add my voice to the others saying how much I enjoyed what you wrote about Call Me by Your Name and how it made you reflect on your own life. Your candor is inspiring. Here's to self discovery! :)

I think that's about right. I liked seeing how Olivier played the role, but he's not exactly a great guy. Understandable, but not great.

The gothic thing was so much fun. I wish I watched this when I was back at Lehigh and could talk to some of my gothic lit friends about it.

And thanks for reading! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
