    Also, I still don't know why that could be his last word. Usually with their last breath, people tell who killed them. Did Rosebud kill Kane?

    I honestly did not understand this movie, which either means it's a Tarantino film or I'm too young.

    Thanks ... always thought this was over-rated; nostalgia is a powerful thing! Now can you do the MOST OVER-RATED 'Western' ever made, that continually pops up near the top on 'Best Westerns' lists everywhere: John Ford's "The Searchers" ... ugh. (followed by several crappy Clint Eastwood westerns... ) DAMN IT, NOSTALGIA !!!

    7:15 I'm surprised you didn't mention the singer who was slow to sing each and every line. The rest of this is sacrilegious, except I'll give you "sin" 19, not sure who actually heard him say "Rosebud". 🤔

    Thank you for this. I was forced to watch this film in three different cinema classes and yes while I acknowledge it was an important part of cinema history, the actual movie is dull as shit and I knew what rosebud referred to at age 8 because of a parody in a freaking Alf comic book

    The scene where he paned a camera through the neon sign was made using a small recreation of the set. It was actually on a macro scale. And yeah no film producer these days does anything that cool. It's all cgi

    "In Xanadu last week was held 1941's biggest, strangest funeral" is 100% grammatically correct, though it is very awkward and stilted.

    I will never understand people who bash this content. It isn't meant to be serious. It's sad that some people's entire lives revolve around watching movies; any sort of critique to their movies is taken as a personal attack. Like grow up, don't watch it if it bothers you so much, they aren't doing anything wrong, quit being butthurt and go outside. You aren't built for this world and this world isn't built for you. If you want a serious critique then go watch a serious critic.

    Dear sir or madam, I'm writing to protest, in the strongest possible terms, the fact that your sin-based grading system completely ignored what is universally understood to be the single greatest piece of dialogue ever to be written for the dramatic arts. I refer, of course, to that most famous conversation between Misters Kane and Leland following Susan's operatic debut wherein Jed Leland has stalled while attempting to review her performance and Charles Foster has elected to finish the review himself and the two briefly converse. Charles Foster Kane: Hello, Jedediah. Jedediah Leland: Hello, Charlie. I didn't know we were speaking... Charles Foster Kane: Sure, we're speaking, Jedediah: you're fired. I believe, and I feel certain all right-thinking people will agree, that this chestnut was worth, at the very least, two sins off bringing the final tally to 91. I look forward to receiving your response to this complaint at your earliest convenience as I feel confident this was an oversight you will be extremely anxious to rectify. Yours, most sincerely, Christopher "That Guy" Henson Roanoke, VA Dictated but not read.
