Phantom of the Paradise
|You're next, Andrew Lloyd Webber.|
|No, I really do like Shock Treatment.|
Phantom of the Paradise is quite possibly my favorite film of all time. I find its mixture of comedy and tragedy perfect. The story progresses from black humor to melodrama, before culminating in a chaotic celebration of death and tragedy. The music is enjoyable and can provide moments of insight into characters while still standing on its own. It’s a film I revisit every year, and one I look forward to revisiting in the future.
