I finally got around to seeing this classic. It took me a few tries, because I kept falling asleep (to be fair, I always started it late at night, while in bed, so take into consideration). After 3 tries, I finally got around to finishing it.

I had real high hopes for this classic. Being so high up in IMDb Top250, and on top of that, being called Number 1 film of ALL TIME by Am... read more

Multimillionaire newspaper tycoon Charles Foster Kane dies alone in his extravagant mansion, Xanadu, speaking a single word: "Rosebud".

" DVD- 1hr. 59min. First Viewing I really don't know how to review a movie like this, like pretty much every classic I watch. Of course it's magnificent, with every shot representing an advancement in technology and storytelling. I don't know what else I could say that hasn't already been said.
