    What's there left to say? "Citizen Kane" is a film ahead of its time that's still relevant today. Brilliant direction, terrific acting, and arguably the best-written character arc of all time. A masterpiece.

    Citizen Kane isn't a great film because some critics call it one of the "greatest films of all time"; it's a great film because it actually meets that praise.

    The script, direction, and performances are all great and this certainly deserves a lot of the praise its received over the decades but, to be honest, I didn't think it lived up to its legendary status at the "greatest film of all time".

    I'm a 90s baby but I was seriously impressed with how well structured the story was. I also loved the cinematography. The lighting helps portray the intended emotion.

    One of the best films I have ever seen. The lighting and cinematography are excellent. I glean something new every time I watch this film.

    I was particularly struck by the usage of deep focus throughout much of the film. In many scenes the actors were staged on different geometrical planes yet the focus allowed for the facial expressions of each actor to be viewed with surprising clarity.

    My first viewing since Intro to Film Studies - Fall 2009, followed immediately by another with Roger Ebert as my guide on the DVD commentary.

    Ebert notes that Citizen Kane retains an air of mystery that keeps it just out of grasp, much like Kane himself. While I greatly admire and enjoy the film, I still find myself struggling to endeavor past its colossal reputation to fall in love with it on my own terms.

    The original Wolf of Wall Street, only with much, much better mise en scene.

    Saw the greatest film ever made on the big screen. Cinematic utopia.
