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

''I guess Rosebud is just a piece in a jigsaw puzzle...a missing piece.''

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

Exceptional candidate for the best film ever made

The greatest film of all time? In many aspects, yes. Every film watcher knows that there is no definitive greatest film. However, from an objective point of view, Orson Welles’ 1941 masterpiece is a strong candidate. It is literally a perfect film. From its acting, writing and story to its technical composition, Citizen Kane is flawless. Let’s put it in layman’s terms. It’s a fact that it ... 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.

"25.5. Tallenne Uusintakatselu. Kameratyö on mestariluokkaa ja Kane on pidettävänä egomaanikkomulkkuna periaatteessa hyvinkin kiinnostava ja tutkiskelua ansaitseva hahmo, mutta tarina ei oikein jaksa enää joinkuin tuttuna kiinnostaa riittävällä tasolla. Se ei ole kaksituntiselle tarinavetoiselle elokuvalle ihan hyvä juttu. Visuaalista puolta kyllä jaksaa ihailla koko keston edestä."

"“It’s one movie that explored everything that came before it and influenced almost everything that came after it…. told a story in a whole new way. Flashbacks inside of flashbacks, changing points of view, breaking all the rules. On top of that, this was an incredibly dangerous film to make. The character of Citizen Kane was based on William Randolph Hearst…and there were many powerful forces trying to stop this movie. But Welles…stuck to his vision. And movies have never been the sam"
