Groundhog Day (book review) Ryan Gilbey

(BFI Film Classics)

??? 2000s: this is one of my favorite films. this is why. i just read this again today, laughing in recollection. can i make this a six star rating? here in the northern hemisphere i think we should celebrate february 2. every year. and then again. this little bfi book is a great reminder of how sometimes the stars and planets align... and the hollywood dream factory earns its name. this book notes how each day phil connors lives is the same then different, each day cut into significant moments, then moves on rapidly once the audience catches on. for every moment of seriousness, of bleak reflection, there can only be one answer- car chase! and could anyone ever top bill murray in his best role? you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll guffaw, you'll do it all over again, and again, and again... every 2 february. book it.
