    The Magnificent Ambersons


    oedipal myth at the dawn of modernity. on second watch you find more of what is there, rather than what is inevitably and tragically absent. agnes moorhead is shatteringly good

    The Eyes of Orson Welles


    anything talking about My Guy Orson is worth seeing for me but the narrative device here is wince inducing at times. i always appreciate cousins’ textual analysis but i could have done without all the rhetorical questions welles would have found grossly simpering im sure. 

    conspicuous by its absence is anything about ambersons and that only made me want to rewatch it. should probably revisit lady from shanghai too
