Bedford Falls vs. Pottersville

From the New York Times, a breakdown of “It’s a Wonderful Life” from the admittedly cynical and non-mushy Wendell Jamieson.

Here’s the thing about Pottersville that struck me when I was 15: It looks like much more fun than stultifying Bedford Falls — the women are hot, the music swings, and the fun times go on all night. If anything, Pottersville captures just the type of excitement George had long been seeking.

A great read for those of us who, whether we love the movie or not, can’t ignore the ruthless munchies we get for Capracorn this time of year.

→ Wonderful? Sorry, George, It’s a Pitiful, Dreadful Life
