Citizen Kane

Hello everybody!!

Today I’ll talk a little bit about the movie Citizen Kane (1941), which I watched in the cinema last month, in those classic movies sessions.

This movie is very known by its nomination of “Better Movie of All Times”, which was given by a voting of the American Film Institute (AFI) in 1998. Then, let’s see what is so interesting and innovator in this production.

Citizen Kane

First of all, this was the first movie to present the story in a nonlinear time, once the movie begins with the main character (Charles Foster Kane) dead and, only in the movie development, we can see all the facts involving his life, until, of course, his death. This movie also was the first one being filmed showing all the scenography, from the floor until the roof.

By the way, till the trailer of Citizen Kane was unusual for its times! Let’s give a look:

Citizen Kane was directed by Orson Welles, who also acted in the movie beside Joseph Cotten. It won an Academy Awards in 1942 in the “Best Screenplay” category. Also was indicated in other eight categories, including “Best Movie” and “Best Director”.

So, what do you think about this movie? Tell me!
