8.11.2015 All That Heaven Allows

I have heard a lot of film writers try and use irony to save Sirk. I don’t get it, everything here seems so earnest and for me that  is what makes it really great. It is critical of society, but it does this pretty directly, not through irony. Anyway, this movie makes me cry throughout and is some of the greatest lighting you can find.
