Citizen Kane 1941

From Amazon: Arguably the greatest of American films, Orson Welles's 1941 masterpiece, made when he was only 26, still unfurls like a dream and carries the viewer along the mysterious currents of time and memory to reach a mature (if ambiguous) conclusion: people are the sum of their contradictions, and can't be known easily. Welles plays newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane, taken from his mother as a boy and made the ward of a rich industrialist. The result is that every well-meaning or tyrannical or self-destructive move he makes for the rest of his life appears in some way to be a reaction to that deeply wounding event. Written by Welles and Herman...

Citizen Kane Movie Review by Filmkiller (8/29/2007)

Kane, spiritually spiraling downward after his inheritance, starts as a man who wishes to use his money to help people; this done through acquiring and running a newspaper.

Citizen Kane Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/5/2007)

Sure it has been crowned the greatest (American) film of all time by AFI, but there is a reason for that. Orson Welles invented camera tricks and created the way we make movies now with his clean edits and powerful acting. And it was his first film! And he was 26! Believe the hype.

Citizen Kane Movie Review by Ezra (2/16/2007)

Never before or since has any director made such an impressive feature film debut as Orson Welles did, at the astonishing age of 25, with Citizen Kane (1941). Despite having no prior experience in filmmaking, Welles was given carte blanche on the film, and he delivered the most original, innovative and provocative film of...
