I watched this film for the first time when I was 11 years old. At the time I loved it, but I'm certain that I didn't understand it. That being said, this was one of the films that got me into cinema. I always consider Citizen Kane the one film that got me into cinema and it did, it changed my life, but if it wasn't for films like Raging Bull, Schindler's List, Annie Hall and many other masterpieces like…
I'm a bit conflicted about this film. The first act is very good and the third one is really great, but I found the the second one (the middle) very uninteresting. Also, everything after the "finger-gun suicide" scene felt unnecessary. The actual last scene was fine, but the part with the letter felt very pushed. I'm still gonna give this film 5/5, but this might change after I think about it a bit more.
