(Review originally written at 17 July 2004)

While I must admit that I find this movie hardly one of the best ever made, I still have very much respect for it and consider it a great and important achievement in film making.

"Citizen Kane" is basically a movie about the life of a man. It might sound boring and average to you but it's not! There is never a dull moment thanks to a clever script, good dialogue, wonderful characters and an unique style! There is some phenomenal camera work and lighting, some subtle early special effects and very believable make-up for the character Kane (Orson Welles) that ages much throughout the movie.

Yes, Orson Welles really has delivered a masterpiece with this movie. It was unique in its time and it still is a very appealing movie to watch these days.
