First of all, what an incredible restoration job by Warner. I thought it was a very good, maybe great film, but I don't know if I would go so far as to call it the absolute best the 20th century has to offer. I realize that it probably lost some of its effect for me because I've seen the things that it did for the very first time so many times before in movies that copied the techniques it pioneered. I'd like to pose a few questions to ya'll: 1. Do you think that this movie is deserving of the AFI's top spot? 2. What makes it better than say, Casablanca, The Godfather, or On the Waterfront? 3. Was the lesson of the movie that: knowing what "Rosebud" meant really didn't mean anything, because his life couldn't be defined by just one word? 4. What exactly was the significance of Rosebud?
