Ok, first of all, I do not fall into the category of the type of person who’s favourite movie list consists of anything with Julia Roberts or Ben Affelck. As you can see I don’t even know how to spell his name. My favourite movie of all time is Rashomon.
Anyway, I’ve been seeing and hearing about the movie The Third Man for years - seeing it popping up on top 10 lists everywhere (sometimes as #1), and don’t ask me why, but I never got around to watching it until this week and … WTF? What’s supposed to be so great about it? It wasn’t bad in any sense, although the first 40 minutes or so did drag a bit, but why is this movie so highly praised? The most enjoyable part for me was the sewer chase, but I doubt that is the reason why this movie is so beloved. I’m sure there are some Third Man loving dopers on here, so defend this movie!
