Citizen Kane (1941)


So I checked out Citizen Kane again (last time was maybe 8 years ago), and came back even more surprised why the fuck so many of the world's top movie critics proclaim it the greatest movie ever made. I must say though that the director, Orson Welles, ain't that bad of an actor (but someone should have worked harder at his old-age make-up). Oh, and I love the in-movie campaign poster, the one that shows the image of the character he played.

Maybe I must find out what 'greatest' means. Maybe it means influence, in which case then I wouldn't complain (I suppose the non-linear storytelling and cinematography were groundbreaking), but if it means 'best', well...
