federica ♡’s review published on Letterboxd:
technically it’s flawless and definitely ground-breaking, but the narrative doesn’t work (at least it didn’t for me). i followed the whole feature, never got distracted, and it still felt not captivating enough. many people from my course got distracted, especially in the last thirty minutes or so.
nevertheless i can appreciate how influential this film was, but at the same time, i just didn’t connect with it the way i hoped. also i hated that Welles told us Rosebud’s true identity.
