The Stinking Pause podcast – bringing you classic movie reviews since 2013
A brand new movie this week as we take a look at Steven Spielberg's remake of a classic sixties musical
West Side Story (2021)
Manhattan, Upper West Side, 1957. Against the backdrop of the decaying tenements in the San Juan Hill neighbourhood and the constant threat of the wrecking ball, two warring gangs--tough Riff's Jets and swaggering Bernardo's Puerto Rican Sharks--fight for supremacy. Now, with a once-and-for-all, winner-takes-all rumble on the cards, an unexpected whirlwind romance at the high-school dance between former Jet brawler Tony and Bernardo's delicate little sister María sets the stage for an all-out turf war. But what's a gang without its territory? Above all, when the future is uncertain, what's hope without love?
“All my life, it's like I'm always just about to fall off the edge of the world's tallest building. I stopped falling the second I saw you."
