...With the power to melt the coldest of hearts. James Stewart gives a flawless performance...
The film shows all Capra's strength, in warm and tender detail, and his weakness, in the whimsey that turns real evil to the ogre of a tinselled, happy-ending tale. Full Review
Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Rating: 4/4 -- The most well-loved of all Christmas movies. Full Review
...As appealing as ever...
Sight and Sound
...It looks more masterful than ever...
It's a Wonderful Life is about hunger. It's about greed. It's about the many ways a good man is stymied. Finally, it's about George Bailey, whose decency prevents him even from killing himself. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- There's sex and death here, elation and depression, hope and despair. Full Review
Little White Lies
A good but slightly ineffectual man tries to off himself after an error that really wasn't his fault. In Christmas Carol fashion, his crusty-but-lovable guardian angel shows up to give him a tour of the world without his presence, and it isn't a pretty place. Moral courage, small-town American life, civic cooperation, and family love are glorified; corporate greed and self-involvement are vilified; at the climax, a blanket of snow like spun sugar makes everything pure and clean like redemption itself.
