Pardon me for asking but could you define the phrase "truly important
filmmakers?" Or at least provide some descriptors to identify the truly
important filmmaker. I ask because _Citizen Kane_, if I'm not
mistaken, was also directed by an "untried and inexperienced" filmmaker
which *over a relatively lengthy period of time* has been elevated to
canonical status. Is it not inconceiveable that such could be the case
with PF?
