(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.
