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

How many years go by this film will remain on top. It is different, inimitable, is timeless. These interpretations are directed foveres.I masterful. The technical work very good. The makeup flawless. 'But above all is the script.
Why is this film considered one of the best of all times?

Biggest list of Simpsons' movie references (151 movies items)

" ''In the episode Rosebud Mr. Burns' manor where he lies dying with a snow ball in his hand is a parody of the opening scenes of the film. Also the flashback where Mr. Burns leaves his teddy bear Bobo behind to go along with a rich millionaire and leave his parents references a similar scene where Charles Foster Kane is told to leave his parents for a richer life. Kane then leaves his sled behind.'' (Season 5th, episode 4th) In Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish, the scene"

One of the best movies ever

“After 74 years of existance, I have finally seen 'Citizen Kane' and how is it? Brilliant! One of the best movies ever!

'Citizen Kane' features a brilliant plot about a man named Charles Foster Kane who has died and his last word was "Rosebud", the movie sees people trying to find out why it was his last word, they find out in one of the best ways possible, going through his life to old age!

Aside the plot, the movie also features great acting by the entire cast, entertaining script and fantastic direction by Orson Welles. One of the best movies ever.” read more

The Most Overrated Piece of Garbage I've Seen.

“Something you should know about me, that i'm no hipster, i don't enjoy trashing old movies just to piss off people, but i'm also not stupid, i don't praise a movie, just for the fact that it's already praised, meaning, that i don't review this movie as "the best movie ever made", i review it, just like any other movie, if it's good, ok then, if it's bad, it's bad, even though i'm fully aware of the timing of these movies, but i'm against the saying that "old movies are better than new movies", or "all classics are good movies", i think that a good movie is a good movie no matter if it's produced in 2014 or 1914.

Citizen Kane is one of the most boring movies i have ever seen, i literally lost the ability to live while watching it, i couldn't get through it with one sitting, i had ” read more

Attica! Attica! posted a review 1 year, 7 months ago

“Far and away the most surprising and cinematically exciting motion picture to have been seen here in many a moon. As a matter of fact, it comes close to being the most sensational film ever made in Hollywood. Its imagery (not forgetting the oppressive ceilings) as Welles delightedly explores his mastery of a new vocabulary, still amazes and delights, from the opening shot of the forbidding gates of Xanadu to the last glimpse of the vanishing Rosebud (tarnished, maybe, but still a potent symbol). A film that gets better with each renewed acquaintance.” read more

Orson Welles first feature film -- which he directed, produced, and co-wrote, as well as playing the title role -- proved to be his most important and influential work, a ground-breaking drama loosely based on the life of William Randolph Hearst which is frequently cited as the finest American film ever made. Aging newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane (Orson Welles) dies in his sprawling Florida estate after uttering a single, enigmatic final word -- "Rosebud" -- and newsreel producer Rawlston (Phil Van Zandt) sends reporter Jerry Thompson (William Alland) out with the assignment of uncovering the meaning behind the great man's dying thought. As Thompson interviews Kane's friends, family, and associates, we learn the facts of Kane's eventful and ultimately tragic life: his aban” read more

Far from the greatest movie of all time

“I can never decide what my favourite film, book, album etc. of all time are, but this definitely isn't a great film. I was tempted to give it one star to try to counter out the ones that say it is.

There is some great camera work that's ahead of its time, and I especially remember one shot where the camera started off outside, passed through a skylight and seamlessly ended up showing an indoor scene with actors. But that's not enough to make a film great.

The storyline is nothing to write home about, the acting is like so many classics of the era - wooden - and some of the backdrops look like something from an amateur pantomime.” read more

"19.11 Pakkohan jokaisen harrastajan tämä pätkä on jossai vaiheessa katsoa, kun tämä niin monen listan kärkipäässä aina roikkuu. Citizen Kane ei ole maailman paras elokuva, mutta erittäin hyvä sellainen ja varsinkin aikaansa nähden tämä on huippusuoritus. Kerronta on erittäin sulavaa ja elokuvaa on hitaasta temmosta huolimatta erittäin mielenkiintoista seurata. Orson Welles pääosassa on erittäin vakuuttava ja ei voi kuin ihmetellä nuoren miehen lahjoja niin monella eri osa-a"

30 Movies That'll Never Be Remade (30 movies items)

"Why It’ll Never Be Remade: For the same reasons as Gone With The Wind, largely. Not only would the idea be widely regarded as sacrilege, but the twist ending has now been parodied to the point of no return! That said, it would be interesting to see a modern-day interpretation, factoring in the struggle between print and online media, but it’s never going to happen, is it? Not until Rupert Murdoch decides to finance his own biopic… If They Have To Do It: Mel Gibson stars as barmy, megaloma"
