There is an ongoing story in the history of cinema about films that are derided and rejected upon release but then completely re-assessed years later. Titles like Citizen Kane, Blade Runner, Vertigo, It's a Wonderful Life, and more all share this in common. Let's talk about this concept of re-evaluation and what it means, if anything at all, for the future.
