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.

"6.6 En ole koskaan pitänyt Citizen Kanesta niin paljon kuin luulisin pitäväni. Onhan se sentään Hollywoodia, Wellestä ja niin kaanonia kuin olla ja voi. Kaikki asioita joista välitän. Mutta jokin jää aina uupumaan. Citizen Kane on erinomainen elokuva, mutten rakasta sitä. En koskaan huomaa ajattelevani Citizen Kanea samalla lämmöllä ja kaipauksella kuin kymmeniä muita, ehkäpä huonompia elokuvia."

1001 Movies ... my own version (1940's) (13 movies items)

" Notes: There always will be a debate about this movie. Some think it is indeed the best movie ever made and some will tell you it is the most overrated movie ever made. It is always the risk with such a huge classic that, if you watch it at a very young age (like I did the first time around) after building up some huge expectations, you might wonder what was the fuss all about. In my opinion, this movie is great because it is really subtle and also because it was much ahead of its time. I thin"
