New Thing #357: Citizen Kane

P1202

From the very beginning of this blog I’ve had “Watch Citizen Kane” on the list but it’s taken me nearly the entire year to actually do it.

It’s really quite an astonishing movie when you take the year it was filmed into consideration. It was way ahead of its time. It also may be some of the best movie lighting I’ve ever seen on film.

Even the makeup was outstanding, I never would have realized that they made Orson Welles younger for his earlier scenes in the film if it weren’t for IMDB.

I’m glad I’ve finally seen this film. Now I’m just going to have to decide where it stands on my own personal list of greatest films ever made. Deep Blue Sea is a pretty tough act to beat after all.

    I believe actually it’s got to be a toss up between the two classics; Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus and Mega Shark Vs. Crocosaurus. No seriously, Citizen Kane is up there with the best. My all time favorite though is Seven Samurai.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fa7ck5mcd1ohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqZlCWkH4P0&feature=fvwrelhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U87zVkIXNI0&feature=relatedU
