I watched Casablanca again recently. It’s obvious why it’s considered one of the definitive classics. It got me thinking what other really awesome one word films there are. Turns out, more than you might realise. How many did you get? Any others you like that aren’t on the list?
For some characters, fighting against the establishment is their identity. What drives them, keeps them from taking the easy decisions and going on a wild journey that usually ends up costing them everything. And watching them is nothing less than absorbing.

William Somerset: I didn’t say I was different or better. I’m not. Hell, I sympathise; I sympathise completely. Apathy is the solution. I mean, it’s easier to lose yourself in drugs than it is to cope with life. It’s easier to steal what you want than it is to earn it. It’s easier to beat a child than it is to raise it. Hell, love costs: it takes effort and work.
