Must-see Movie: Citizen Kane


Published:

“Rosebud.” It’s the infamous last word uttered by Charles Foster Kane, the wealthy media proprietor, played by Orson Welles. The enigmatic line, which was named the 17th best movie quote by the American Film Institute, opens the sweeping masterpiece, Citizen Kane, and sets its story into motion. The flick is considered by many cinema critics (including the AFI) to be the greatest film of all time. It plays this Sunday at the Yonge & Dundas Cineplex.

The 1941 film was also co-written and directed by wunderkind Welles and went on to be nominated for nine Academy Awards. It was also Welles’ first feature, and one that many consider to be his best. The film is lauded for its innovations in narrative structure and cinematography; aspects of the film that we still see emulated today.

But for all its Hollywood hubbub, the movie’s hype still leaves many movie-goers scratching their heads and debating its place in cinematic history. We might as well watch it for ourselves (finally) and see what the fuss is all about.

Citizen Kane, Yonge & Dundas Cineplex, 10 Dundas St. E., 416-977-9262. Nov. 18.
