“The cut that survives today is a ruin, but it is a magnificent ruin. Even in its shattered form, the film remains a work of immense beauty and power, blending an epic social vision with an acute and intimate personal tragedy. Ambersons is a film of great warmth, humor, and nostalgia; at the same time, it is absolutely terrifying in its vision of human spitefulness, isolation, and waste…If movies are the art of light and shadow, this is one of the most pure moments the movies have achieved: Shades of light are translated, through the most natural and unobtrusive of metaphors, into shades of the soul.”
Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune [Read More]
