Happy 50th is a new category here at Wipe where we will be reviewing the films that have the distinction of turning 50-years-old this year. Not all the films reviewed will be award winners, but they most definitely will all be classics in their own special ways. By doing this we hope to introduce these films to a new generation of cinephiles, or to simply remind you of a film that you’ve always loved and need to revisit. Whatever your reason for reading Happy 50th may be, we hope that you enjoy this distinct look at these works that have survived the test of time and that you might be inspired to also dig deep into the dusty cinematic vaults to find your next bit of viewing pleasure.
Happy film watching,
