Great Film(s) with exceptional Extra Features!
on December 15, 2015
Citizen Kane stands up as one of the greatest films of all time, and the extra features, including a film about the making of Citizen Kane, are invaluable. Orson Wells was one of the most amazing people of the 20th century. He was outrageous and over the top, but when he was able to focus his prodigious talent, the result was astounding. Too bad that Hollywood was not ready for him and that he chose to attack someone who had the power and spite to destroy him. Kane's brief speech as a political candidate sounds like something said by politicians today! The consolidation of media by wealthy individuals and their use of it for personal gain and skewed politics has happened again in the USA. Citizen Kane should be a warning against these abuses but we just don't pay attention. Wells had flaws that were equal to his talents, but his artistic legacy endures.
