Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941)

Citizen Kane (Orson Welles, 1941)
Rating: 8.6

(2nd viewing)

The technical merits far outweigh the impact of the narrative for me. I've heard some critics complain that Welles' trick shots and stylization hinder the emotional weight and I tend to agree, however it is the former which has given Citizen Kane the reputation it has today.
