Busby Berkeley

His films make me wish that every moment in my life was punctuated with song, dance and poised close-up shots. I watched Dames this past weekend. Dames.
Otherwise, I have only seen Gold Rush of 1935. In both films he turns awe-shucks attitudes and lighthearted clich├ęs into abstract thought and geometric shapes.
Gold rush 1935.
