Golden Door review

70067846.jpg

What a gorgeous film about a family of Sicilians immigrating into America through Ellis island. The cinematography is the best I’ve seen this year, and the director Crialese is an immense talent to watch (Even Scorsese says so in the film’s intro-). The last shot has to be seen to be believed. When you let your eyes unfocus you see an incredible image. The trip across the ocean is a little tedious, but otherwise this was a fantastic voyage. Rating: 9/10
