King Vidor United States, 1929

Cristian Georgescu's rating of the film Hallelujah!

Spunk whispering "I heard your voice" in a bar was a very poignant thing to do if you think about Jolson doing blackface and telling us "we ain't heard nothing yet" in The Jazz Singer. Can't help but wonder if Hallelujah did more harm than good. The elliptical editing of Zeke's way back home (singing the same song in multiple locations) is an underrated achievement.
