Citizen Kane

Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, so maybe I’ll finally be able to catch up on my blog reading and posting. That is, if I finish the two articles and two web sites I’m working on. Ah, freelance! Brooke and I watched Citizen Kane last night. Of course, it was amazing. The lighting and camera work were years ahead of their time, at least for an American film. And Orson Welles. Well, it just makes me sad to think he ended up selling bad California wine. Maybe he should have stuck to the theatre. The DVD is excellent, the picture and sound are at their best, and the inclusion of the documentary The Battle Over Citizen Kane is an added bonus. So what do you think? Is it the greatest American film ever made?
