I'm not sure I get the point.  Is it that we can only discuss movies
in-depth after their director has released a certain amount of footage
professionally?  Is it that Tarantino and his work aren't worth the
bother?  Is it that we should only talk about the ONE film you deem worth
intense scrutiny?  Or is it that you don't know where "KANE" ends?
 
If it's the latter, then (SPOILER ALERT)

It ends when they burn his sled:  Rosebud.
 
If it's any of the others....sheesh....
