Default Re: Citizen Kane.

Some say it to be the greatest movie of all time, though I say it to be one of the greatest movies of all time. It certainly has a plot, which sets it apart from our contemporary movies, but it also has character development and originality, which is a rare commodity nowadays. The pacing does, however, become much too slow for even the most patient of viewers, but I do grant that the movie does try its best to keep the attention of the viewer, provided its situation, which has it telling the story as a flashback from various people. Nevertheless, I would personally recommend it for the movie fanatics here, particularly because it is regarded as an important turn for cinema in general, and you would do well to formulate your own opinion of it.

I suppose, those are true. I couldn't have said that better myself.
BUT, the pacing and his methods to keep attention really reduce the credibility of the film, imo. It was well-done at many points, but the fact the film inadvertently became boring to the point Orwell implemented a bird screech to retain attention is questionable.

Otherwise, it is an impressive piece of art, but as far as a film I'm not too sure myself.
