    “If I hadn’t been very rich, I might’ve been a really great man.”

    Slowly crossing off my more embarrassing blind spots 😬 Saw this one at an 80th anniversary screening in theaters and maybe it was just the big screen magic but this one really lived up to the hype for me. Even 80 years later, it’s still politically and socially relevant. Without a doubt some of the best character writing in all of film. Those first twenty minutes are some of the most engrossing filmmaking I’ve seen.
