No Track Information Available
Media Type: DVD
Title: CITIZEN KANE
Street Release Date: 09/24/2002
No minuscule "featurette" for the greatest movie ever made. The backbone for this grand two-disc set is the 1995 Oscar®-nominated documentary The Battle over Citizen Kane, a very rich two-hour film on how this masterpiece was almost destroyed by Welles's adversary, William Randolph Hearst. A great remastered print is complemented by two running commentaries, the better one by critic Roger Ebert. Don't think you want a two-hour lecture by Mr. Ebert? Just listen to his 10-minute talk over the gallery of photographs from the movie (which you can flip through manually with your remote or see as a slide show), and you'll want more. Ad campaigns, storyboards, and even call sheets are included in this must-have DVD. --Doug Thomas

When watching older movies you nee dot take into account that what was being done, had never been done before. Or else you end up like one of those people who say who say the classics where so cliched.
You also should look at the social impact, the impact on Welles, and also the impact on... Read More

Why not just be grateful that MagAm will be on Region 1 DVD at all? I'm no apologist for the studios, but how many years have we waited just for that?

|Citizen Kane blows !!!!!!!!||
He was echoing - and thus mocking - the first poster's spelling. He was not himself making an identical spelling error. You are both lacking in wit and perception. I rate you an idiot.

I cried the first time I watched it, and I was too psychedelicized to really follow the plot. It was the beauty of the film itself, the raw emotion that did it. I have cried every viewing since, and its always the same reasons even now that I have fully analyzed the plot. This movie is magical.
