Citizen Kane (Orson Welles – 1941) A+

I went back to see this -first time I had seen it was maybe 15 years ago- before I watched David Fincher’s Mank. I did not expect to be so entertained and amazed by how fantastic this film truly is. It deserves every accolade it receives for how ahead of its time it is, true, but also how relevant and prescient it still is 80 years later! The way it is told, the time jumps, the fact that it basically spoils itself in the first 15 minutes, the excellent characters, the use of light and shadow…really solidify it as a masterpiece worth revisiting every so often.
