    How was it that I ever even remotely liked this film? 2+ hours of the joys and fears that the introduction of sex can bring, with 2 of the most criminally underwritten lead characters that I've encountered in some time. Painfully simplistic and preachy. Just....awful.

    Though this is just the 40 minute work-print of selected scenes that Welles edited, there's no doubt that this is some sort of masterpiece, and I do hope the crowd funding campaign is a success. If the film-within-a-film is meant to be a dig at "art cinema" of the day, Orson has nailed it.

    Great for an hour, then it just crumbles. That 3rd act makes little sense, and I just don't get why Wright felt the need to end it that way.
