Turner Classic Movies

Been watching this amazing movie, The Cranes Are Flying. Must be the greatest film in black and white, the intensity of each shot overwhelming. This scene was just on the tele less than a minute ago:

Synopsis: Russian guy gets separated from his gal by Army, goes fighting in WWII. Gal gets raped by his cousin and is forced to marry him. Guy gets shot, she begins to go crazy, stranded out in a civilian refugee camp in Siberia living militant lifestyle with rapist-husband.

If I may, the protagonist is the most beautiful and compelling character that I’ve seen on screen since saw SJ in Lost in Translation.

Who knew that Turner Classic Movies could be so cool? I hope they play Freaks next.
