  1. > It’s interesting. It’s different,” writes the Tribune. “In fact, it’s bizarre enough to become a museum piece. But its sacrifice of simplicity to eccentricity robs it of distinction and general entertainment value

    It’s not even that “eccentric”? Welles has done some stuff I’d call eccentric, but not Citizen Kane

  2. I am not a film maker or a film student. I’m not up on all the events surrounding the film. Just as a casual movie watcher, I thought it was terrible. The camera work may be good for when it was made, but, to me, it was boring. I actively tell people not to bother with it. I know why people in the industry love it, but I don’t think it’s the greatest movie ever made. I don’t even think it’s a good movie.
