Citizen Kane , directed & starring Orson Welles (1941/2000 VHS greatest film ever ?) cert U

£3.99

Product description

(plus the documentary "Reflections on Citizen Kane")

In May 1941, RKO Radio Pictures released a controversial film by a 25-year-old, first-time director. That premiere of Orson Welles's "Citizen Kane" was to have a profound and lasting effect on the art of motion pictures.

It has often been hailed as the "best American film ever made", and it's as powerful a film today as it was fifty years ago. It earned eight Academy Award nominations, and won the Oscar for Best Screenplay.

Through its unique jigsaw-puzzle storyline, inventive cinematography, brilliant ensemble acting, and direction by Welles, the story of Charles Foster Kane is a fascinating portrait of America's love of power and materialism, and the corruption it sometimes fosters.

Like all great films, "Citizen Kane" is a memorable fusion of cinematic art and marvellous entertainment.

The VHS tape is in EX+ condition.
Ideal Christmas present, or Birthday present, for someone who likes classic films of the Forties.
