This is the labyrinthine study of the life of a newspaper tycoon.
Orson Welles's epic tale of a publishing tycoon's rise and fall is entertaining, poignant, and inventive in its storytelling, earning its reputation as a landmark achievement in film.
Some day, and the time won't be long in arriving, Welles will be the greatest director in Hollywood.
Many of the novel techniques Welles developed with cinematographer Gregg Toland were calculated to offer new angles on film space.
Citizen Kane, written, produced, directed and played by Orson Welles, is probably the most exciting film that has come out of Hollywood for twenty-five years. I am not at all sure that it isn't the most exciting film that ever came out of anywhere.
It can be classified as, in a number of aspects, one of the most arresting pictures ever produced.
It is a work of art created by grown people for grown people.
The labyrinth is a central locus in the language of cinema, Welles presents himself as its Minotaur, giddy and somber
An ecstasy of light and shadow, of clashing textures and graphic forms, such as hadn't been seen since the silent era.
Welles has found the screen as effective for his unique showmanship as radio and the theatre.
Remarkably creative film is inventive both in story and visual style.
