    Citizen Kane is the only film that I can't watch without crying. It a truly heartbreaking film about a man who was robbed of his childhood in order to insure that he had a successful life a head of him. It's profundity and ambiguity are unmathced by any other film before or after it. It is the only film that I have ever seen that I truly believe is perfect.

    Letters to the Director #6

    To Mr. Orson Welles,

    I'm sorry. I'm truly truly sorry. Sorry for not understanding this colossal masterpiece that many critics recognize as the greatest movie ever made when I first took a look at the film a few years prior. I don't know if it was the overhype of the film that caused me to initially dislike the film, or was trying too hard at figuring out what the mystery behind the notorious "Rosebud" twist…

    Yes, it's all that its supposed to be. Multiple narrators, some of them contained in another's story. Brilliant camera work, especially for the time it was filmed. An ensemble cast working flawlessly together as theater friends only can (Welles' Mercury players are featured here.) Creates its own mythology, symbolism, pace, narrative techniques, tricks and tropes.
    Certainly worth revisiting.
    Welles' performance is one for the history books alone.
    Let's see . . zooming over vistas of splendor and ruin, shouting newsreel…

    The remarkable thing about the identity of "Rosebud" is that: (1) when you learn what it is, the mystery is deepened rather than solved; (2) that doesn't make it any less satisfying or cathartic as resolution; (3) its power doesn't remotely diminish with knowing the answer in advance.

    Hardly perfection though admittedly worthy of admiration, it’s a well made film but the story is lacking and the acting from those other than Orson Welles is stiff.

    Citizen Kane may be one of the most influential movies ever made, with huge technical contributions to cinema and with the invention of a non-linear way of storytelling, but it has important narrative problems and it lacks a compelling story and emotion. The introduction, while great at the beginning, is excessively long. Kane's past is not entretaining to watch and the quest for Rosebud seems a little silly. And there are some scenes at the second half of the film…

    This is the best film ever made. Don't argue. It did it best and it did it first.

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

    Everyone knows about Citizen Kane by now. Only the second time I've seen it and it certainly grew on me this time around. The main reason why this is seen as a classic is that it was made so differently to anything that had come before it, the camera angles that were used were unique and the use of deep focus hadn't…

    The classic of all classics, amazing film making that changed cinema forever. At the same time, this film has been talked about so much and referenced so much that my expectations were just too high and I knew too much! Once I studied the film I appreciated it more!
