    Citizen Kane has a mythos built upon a sense of injustice. It was under appreciated when it came out - a financial failure whose unconventionality set Orson Welles' career back. It didn't even take home the Academy Award that year, losing to the unmemorable How Green Was my Valley.

    It's biggest injustice, however, might be that the viewing of Citizen Kane is not often framed in a positive light. Kane's presence at the top of numerous "Greatest of..." lists means…

    This was my second time around with this film. The first time I saw it I was not that impressed. My opinions with cinema were still developing, as they still are, but now I do see what is so remarkable with this picture.

    The story itself is quite touching and mysterious. Kane is a self-made man with too much pride for his own good, who wants love and companionship, but gets so caught up in his career that he loses…

    This film has the distinction of having the greatest room trashing scene ever.

    Finally I've seen it! YES, last night I saw Citizen Kane. This is the oldest film I have ever seen but it is up there with the bests films I've ever seen. Citizen Kane truly lived up to expectations.

    This film had a great story, it wasn't complex however it was strong. I found the story a little bit slow sometimes and nearly fell asleep a couple of times. Despite it's non-complexity I was having trouble following it in the…

    I have seen this dozens of times (hundreds?) for almost 40 years and it's actually surprising me more and more each time. How is this possible? Is it my ever-increasing Stendhal Syndrome? I know every line in this film; how can I be moved and surprised by these cuts? I notice more and more every little thing that DOESN'T work in here and it makes me love the film more. I may have said it before, maybe even here but…

    How can one speak on that which has been remarked upon before? Discussing Citizen Kane, the touted greatest film of all time, directed by Orson Welles, seems like a foolish endeavour. Particularly true when many great men before me have spoken about its enduring quality and power. Roger Ebert said of it in 1991, “Any agree it is the greatest film of all time” My current favourite Film critic, Richard Brody commented on it by saying that- “Citizen Kane made…

    Sigo pensando que El Proceso es todavía más obra maestra. Pero vamos, que muy bien.
