Morocco is the first Hollywood Dietrich-Sternberg film and the one I find hardest to watch. Indeed, while I’ve pressed PLAY on this one several times, I can’t swear to having seen it. A proper film screening might prove to be the answer, but I’d have to be fully caffeinated.
To look upon MOROCCO today, one cannot help but be astonished by its queerness, sexually and narratively... MOROCCO would look modern and forward-leaning in any era. Today it still points the way to something else, just over the sands.
