Could we possibly get Dorothy Comingore, Joseph Cotten, and Ruth Warrick listed here too?

A great fictitious biography, the opening news sequence is one of the best segments in film history and is better than most fact-based news sequences.

Forget pretentious movie critics, and the "If you don't like this flick you're a dumb person" battalion that we all know and love so much,'cause this is just a average Joe talking here: "Citizen Kane" is actually a VERY good,(re)watchable movie, not just for it importance regarding technical n' groundbreaking innovations on the way cinema is made, but the whole plot Welles constructed was so freakin' brave,dude. The story behind it only made it better. You have to watch this movie with context,it helps SO MUCH to fully understand what this guy did here. 26 f'n years old man. Talk about talent.

Context is just fine, take it or leave it. It's just a fun movie! Great performances, edifying resonance, an interesting conceit, fun to look at, and pretty darn well paced.

Just saw it for the first time and I really liked it. It's poignant, fast paced, tense and thought-provoking all at the same time. Not one of my favourites but a very fine film.
No wonder people go gaga over it.

Yeah it's well acted, influential and the story is interesting enough. But there's too much exposition, the twist made the rest of the film feel like it wasn't leading to anything and it just drags for me!
