Great? Yes. Perfect? Not quite.

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

My first viewing of the film which is frequently hailed as the greatest ever made. I wasn't disappointed.I didn't expect to enjoy it that much for a first viewing. Stuff like Blade Runner, Once Upon A Time In The West and Chinatown took me several viewings for me to enjoy their brilliance. But not for this film, strangely. Cinematography. Acting. Direction. Herrmann's score (although not his great... read more

Multimillionaire newspaper tycoon Charles Foster Kane dies alone in his extravagant mansion, Xanadu, speaking a single word: "Rosebud". In an attempt to figure out the meaning of this word, a reporter tracks down the people who worked and lived with Kane; they tell their stories in a series of flashbacks that reveal much about Kane's life but not enough to unlock the riddle of his dying breath.

THE GREATEST EVER!

“What a fantastic movie! I have been watching the most important films since the 1920s and, when I entered the 1940s with Citizen Kane, I was impressed with the evolution of the script, dialogues and realistic performances, breaking with the moorings of the theater and facing the CINEMA , in fact, different from the previous films. Here comes the photograph with its contrast of light and well placed shadows, the depth in the images when putting, in the same frame, close and general plane with another scene happening. Not to mention the camera moves that are spectacular and innovative.

The only negative criticism I have about the film is that the ending could have been a bit better explored.” read more

"10th of December, DVD Maailman parhaimman elokuvan jalustallehan tämä on nostettu vuosi toisensa jälkeen. Itse en ole samaa mieltä, mutta loistava leffa joka tapauksessa. Monet nykyajan elokuvat ovat niin paljon velkaa tälle klassikolle ja niin monella tavalla, että niiden luettelemisessa menisi ikä ja terveys. Klassinen kertomus modernista kapitalismista sekä amerikkalaisesta unelmasta. Orson Wellesin Charles Kane on sosiopaatti, kuka ei kykene rakkauteen, eikä löydä tyydytystä ede"

Movie Reviews (651-700) (50 movies items)

" One of the few films that show Orson Welles' creativity and great storytelling technique without too much interference from producers (but it destroyed his career). It is excellently acted, directed and edited and is deservedly one of the most beloved movies of all time with some of the most quoted lines of film history. It is a gripping life story biography with all it's warts and scandals intact. You have basically heard of all that's good with it before and if you still haven't seen it - sh"
