"If you don't see this film, I'll kick your Rosebutt."
Wow.There are few things that don't exist in this Earth, and I believe that a bad review of Citizen Kane is one of them.
Citizen Kane is cinematic mastery. Seriously. Now, I don't call myself an expert on cinematic art, but I have taken classes. Now, Citizen Kane was not as boring as those film classes. Sure film classes, as fun as they sound, isn't as fun as it seems, especially when it's being taught by a guy who resembles the Glad-Cling-Wrap man, both physically and personality-wise.
Now, by saying that Citizen Kane isn't as boring as film class, I don't mean that Citizen Kane is boring. Far from it. For a film that was made in the days before our fast-food, compact generation came to birth, it's pretty intense. That's just one of the intricate details that make it a great movie. If you haven't seen it, it's the storyline (an investigator searches for the origin of a media mogul's last words, 'rosebud'), the masterful use of light and shadows in an entirely black and white film (kudos to director Orson Welles) as well as the performances and direction.After all, a film doesn't get rated the no. 1 film of all time for nothing...
