Following the death of a publishing tycoon, news reporters scramble to discover the meaning of his final utterance.

Without question, Citizen Kane is the Citizen Kane of Citizen Kanes.
My 1,000th film marked on this site ever since I joined, now over a year ago. I knew for such an occasion it had to be something special. Something important. Something, epic.
Then I thought of one film, THE film, I still have yet to see. What have many described as the greatest film ever made. The one that changed the landmark of cinema. The one that still influences film making to this very day. Orson Welles', "Citizen Kane".
A film that has been talked about for decades now. Highly regarded as the true peak of its medium. Something that most filmmakers have seen, studied, and deconstructed for years on end, now being viewed by a teenager in Long Island.…
I’m not naïve enough to think that I have anything new to offer in my entirely unnecessary ode to Citizen Kane, but I'll continue writing this anyway because I like writing about films, and Citizen Kane is a film, all right, and a Towering Masterpiece of Cinema at that. I’d have to be exceedingly smart or exceedingly stupid to dispute that, and I reckon I fall somewhere in between.
Pulling apart Citizen Kane shot by shot is more than enough to learn how to make a film, but pulling apart the film's circular structure is also a brilliant way to learn how to tell a story. Since I attempt to write, it's the narrative structure of Citizen Kane that interests…
Citizen Kane is the motion picture which, since its release, has been widely regarded by almost all critics, filmmakers & even many viewers around the world as the greatest film of all time. And although I agree to some extent that, purely on a technical scale, this might be the most influential picture ever made but based solely on its plot & story, there are far better examples in cinema than this one.
Still, there is no denying that Citizen Kane is a boldly crafted feature which not only defied all the typical methods of filmmaking that were in use at its time of production but also ended up completely rewriting the manuals of filmmaking in the process. The film tells the…
I'm fully convinced Orson Welles only made this film to destroy the fuck outta that room.
É uma loucura imaginar que em 1941 alguém pensava o cinema desta forma..
Melhor uso da iluminação na história do cinema.
Obra de arte.
well now I know what to watch if I ever have trouble sleeping
Really amazing way to tell a story. Orson Welles is very charming and can act as Kane at different ages very well (it reminds me a bit of Robert Downey Jr.'s performance in Chaplin).
this is my 5th time seeing this film. never again thx bye
Man, can famous and spoiled people stop saying their short dying message like 'My Immortal Beloved' or 'Rosebud'
Anyone who says this is the greatest movie ever made is pretentious and lying. I had always heard how hyped this film got everyone but now that ive seen it the plot and story wasnt as interesting as i was hoping and expecting but thats just my #onion
I just want to remind everyone of how horribly drawn the poster for this movie is. Orson Welles' face looks like the guy from the first Ouija movie.
All the films from all the editions, including those subsequently removed, presently totalling 1187. An easy way of seeing how…
