Rating: 5/5 -- Frank Capra's century-defining masterpiece is a treasure of Classical Hollywood cinema. Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- The most well-loved of all Christmas movies. Full Review
George Bailey's everyman charm reminds us that it doesn't take a war to make a hero.
Rating: 2/5 -- One problem with the film is that it's only in the acquisition of money and the community subjugating their own savings and needs for George, that his rebirth can be complete. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/4 -- While it isn't the best picture to come out of Hollywood this year, nor is it Capra's masterpiece, it tells a good story and its conclusion has a heart-warming effect on the audience. Full Review

Sight and Sound
It's a Wonderful Life is a wonderful title for a motion picture about which practically everyone who sees it will agree that it's wonderful entertainment. Full Review
A good but slightly ineffectual man tries to off himself after an error that really wasn't his fault. In Christmas Carol fashion, his crusty-but-lovable guardian angel shows up to give him a tour of the world without his presence, and it isn't a pretty place. Moral courage, small-town American life, civic cooperation, and family love are glorified; corporate greed and self-involvement are vilified; at the climax, a blanket of snow like spun sugar makes everything pure and clean like redemption itself.
