Citizen Kane(1941)

Directors : Orson Welles

Synopsis :

Newspaper magnate, Charles Foster Kane is taken from his mother as a boy and made the ward of a rich industrialist. As a result, every well-meaning, tyrannical or self-destructive move he makes for the rest of his life appears in some way to be a reaction to that deeply wounding event.

Our View :

Always ranked in the top 10, and often number 1, this movie introduced new styles and techniques to Hollywood, thanks to a true visionary; and all he did was write, star and direct this gem at the ripe old age of 25.
