    I know it's sacrilegious for me to say this, but I thought Citizen Kane was...alright. A splendid movie for its time, huge historical significance since the French revival etc etc but none of that really matters much to me when I'm trying to judge a film on its objective merits.

    Are there things I liked about it? Of course. The narrative structure is very engaging though slightly tedious in the opening hour. There are some interesting parallels between Kane and…

    Just because this movie is good for you doesn't mean that it will taste bad. Not only does it live up to it's exalted reputation, Citizen Kane is an incredibly entertaining, often funny and never boring movie.

    In this scene is a montage of the deterioration of Kane's first marriage. In the first scene the camera pans toward Kane greeting Emily, kissing and complimenting her, and then sitting on the side adjacent to her, and already one can sense the tension in their marriage: the dissonance between what Kane says to Emily and his intentions. Then the sequence shifts through time and setting, with the styles of the characters and rooms changing, yet they are always…

    I have put off watching this film for so long because of the lasting impact it's had on cinema and pop culture in general. Every time I thought of watching it I felt intimidated, but I'm so glad I've seen it now.

    With Citizen Kane and other films which are cited as the greats, even if you lack an interest in the plot (which I didn't) or feel it's been oversold by film buffs (again, I didn't), you can't help…

    My Great Movies momentum has slowed immensely in the last few months. Roger Ebert’s list is (sadly) not getting any longer, but other commitments keep me from diving in as whole-heartedly as I would like. Nothing could keep me away forever, not even as daunting a task as watching Citizen Kane for the first time.

    You’ve most likely heard of Citizen Kane because it is widely regarded as one of the best movies ever made. The…

    What can I say about this film that hasn't already been said? It's one of the best films I've ever seen.

    Non-linear, incredibly innovate, aesthetically unbelivable, one-of-a-kind deliciousness! I love you Orson Welles...first War of the Worlds and than this...just incredibly creative:)

    When it comes to Citizen Kane, the ‘against’ corner is a pretty lonely place to be. The movie, voted ‘the best of all time’ by Sight and Sound readers for more than 50 years, is an undisputed cinematic great, but its greatness is thrust upon it and comes most from it’s lasting influence rather than from the movie’s intrinsic value. It’s a movie you feel compelled to like – any other response signifies a lack of cultural understanding or an…

    I can't really comprehend why film lecturers like this film so much. I expected much more from it, and walked out of the screening disappointed. It's got a few redeeming features I suppose, but it's nothing special.
