    Even bearing in mind the studio cuts, i couldn't really see the semblances of a film "better than Citizen Kane", as Welles supposedly claimed Ambersons could've been. Also the version that survives is very dark and the picture aspect is rather cluttered and awkward. I watched the DVD so I assume this is the best surviving copy, which really is a shame. 7 years 3 months ago

    Oh my gosh....oh MY gosh. Will you GET UP?

    I don't know about it being as good or better than Citizen Kane but what does it matter, it's a great film. Welles is an absolute expert at storytelling, he manages to tap into something timeless in his films and it shows here.

    (Hats off to Tim Holt too! I loved his performance)
