#6: The Magnificent Ambersons (Orson Welles, 1942)


Because it's a dream from which we wake too early.

Based on your epigram here, I wonder if you'd agree, but there is a part of me that wouldn't want to see the lost, mythic footage, because the sad, elegant brevity of this movie is part of what's so sensational about it.

What am I saying, of course I ache to see the lost footage, but still - love the brevity. Fabulous choice.

Yep, I would say that's pretty much exactly it — all the more poignant because of its incompleteness...
