    3-0 out of 5 stars less exciting than other seasons
    First of all , i'm a die hard Sopranos fan . I own all 5 seasons . Seasons 1-5 were all pretty good , some standing out more than others . My favorite episode was Seasons 3 Pine Barrens . Anyway , season 6 was pretty dissappointing for me . The Vito storyline was drawn out way to long . Everyone knew he was gay , but they seemed to devote half the episodes just to vito . They coulda tied that story up in one , maybe two episodes . It seemed the writer was trying ride off the success of Brokeback Mountain .Tonys near death experience was pretty good touch though . Especially the changes he made after his coma . Anyway , I hope the next half is better .

    3-0 out of 5 stars Half the season, half the quality of previous seasons...
    Season six, part one?Trying to make money due to a hiatus that should not have occurred, but who could blame them.However, I would of just called it quits on season six with 12 episodes and have a final season seven.I hope that when season six part two comes out, we will have the option of buying the complete season instead of buying part one and part two.As far as season six, it is by far not the best and this is regrettably being said by one of greatest Sopranos fans there are.I have always liked the writing, the acting and the plot.In fact, episode one of season six is one of the best episodes ever made, but for the most part of season six, part one, it has been lackluster to the point of almost boring on occasions.Yes, there were some good plot twists, some great acting and some very good writing that deals with subject matter not normally associated with this genre of television or movies.My rating of this box set or the first 12 episodes is a comparison with the first five "full" seasons in which I own the box sets.The show is aging, maturing to the point where you know you are being led to its finale.What the show is doing well is that it is not leaving really any clues as to what to expect for part two--which my hope is that the show rebounds and finishes with a literal bang.God save Tony and please give us a movie for the real finale.For those of you, I hope you TIVO'd the first 12 episodes like I did, that way you don't have to buy "part one" and wait for the entire season to end and hopefully be able to buy the entire season for about the same price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Still the Sexiest Show
    This show is completely inexplicable to me.Despite the fact that the people and the stories are so evil and sick, it still turns me on.I cannot figure out why, but I just know it's true.Tony, I love you!I can't help it.I'll probably keep loving you even after somebody whacks you! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Tale As Old As Time Done Right
    Beauty and the Beast may well be the very best animated film Disney ever produced. The characterizations of the leads are great as we have the sweet book loving Belle and the the flawed but totally redeemable "Beast".Gaston and Belle's father are also well drawn and memorable as are the comic relief bearing "enchanted" servants at the castle. There's something for everyone as the story is so romantic it leaves a lot of grown up ladies sighing, the bad guys are not too scary for the little ones and for the rest it is just a great tale.Plus Beauty and the Beast has some of the best songs ever written for a Disney production.No wonder the Broadway musical hasbeen such a hit as well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tied for first for best Disney feature
    I must've been about 10 when I first saw the Lion King and I was practically floored. Those catchy-for-their-own-good songs, the animation(well, me now talking) and that wildebeast stampede. The other one is Beauty and the Beast which for the life of me I can't remember seeing when I was young yet loved every minute of it. Revisiting it now I still love it and on one hand seeing it as a landmark in Disney's catalogue but also one in a series of films that marked a brief creative comeback.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Beauty and the Beast
    Yep, Disney animation. All my students see this movie at some point between leaving high school and when I meet them as university students. Sometimes, their Chinese university teachers show it to them in class. So, I thought I'd see why they love it so much. I'm still wondering. This is a two-page short story, not a film. But on the bright side, if you skip all the songs it's under an hour. I've never enjoyed a singing toon in my life. ... Read more

    "You have brought music back into my home".This is a story about a man, who lost his wife, suffered loneliness, realized the value of his family and embraces his family once again in music and drama, and falls in love with a woman of great culture and life.
    5-0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL TRANSFER OF A PERFECT MOVIE
    SOUND OF MUSIC 40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION (Fox) is the latest digital version of this beloved, timeless, film.The two-disc set features an exceptionally sharp transfer and a rich audio mix but the real treat is the new commentary with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer (this in addition to the late Robert Wise's commentary).

    5-0 out of 5 stars FILM NOIR AT ITS CREEPIEST BEST
    We've seen it before. Based on an actual case, this Oscar-nominated gem tells the twisted tale of a scheming black widow (played by Barbara Stanwyck) who draws a smooth-talking insurance man (Fred MacMurray) into a wed of intrigue and murder. Their insurance scam goes awry, and the lovers turn against each other as their survival instincts kick in and the stakes get higher and higher. Lust and crime don't pay, and here, with a screenplay by Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler, the pay-off is so downright hard-boiled criminal it's brilliant. Film noir just doesn't get more flawless
    5-0 out of 5 stars Cheap wig for a cheap dame...
    The grand daddy of them all.If you can get over the (intentionally) cheap wig worn by Barbara Stanwyck, there is no disputing this is one of the best of the Film Noir genre.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great DVD Treatment of One of Billy Wilder's Greatest Films!
    The super deluxe 2-disc DVD edition of the 1944 film noir classic DOUBLE INDEMNITY (DI) rocks!Director/co-screenwriter Billy Wilder's flair with suspense and black humor works so perfectly with James M. Cain's novel about adulterous lovers plotting to murder the woman's husband and scam the man's insurance company, it even improves on the book.The dark tone and scandalous subject matter freaked out Hollywood so much that it took 9 years to get DI from the printed page to the big screen.Fred MacMurray was the only leading man in Hollywood with the guts to take the role of insurance salesman-turned-murderer Walter Neff, though even MacMurray needed convincing at first.None of the other in-demand male stars of the period wanted Barbara Stanwyck's conniving, money-loving, hubby-offing temptress Phyllis Dietrichson to make a chump out of him.Their loss!(I'd first seen MacMurray when I was a kid.Back then, he was best known to my generation as a Disney movie star and the lovable dad of TV's MY THREE SONS, so it was quite a revelation to me when I saw him playing underhanded types in DI, THE APARTMENT, and THE CAINE MUTINY.MacMurray had more range than he got credit for!)

    Editorial Review

    Maverick director Michael Winterbottom wondered about the double standard of why novels can have explicit sex scenes and be legit and films could not. So his short film of a relationship based solely on sex and a love for music is the result of that thought. If the definition of a porn film is to shoot actors performing graphic sex scenes for real, then Read more

    Daring. If movies are as uninhibited as this movie is(although this cuts to the chase on the sex part as it could have more romance before sex). It reminded me of the movie "Intimacy". Sex and more sex plus Alternative rock, it can't get any better. x

    5-0 out of 5 stars Frankenstein Is Alive!
    Caveat: This is the TCM 75th anniversary edition of one film -- Frankenstein. This is NOT the legacy box set!That said -- this is a spectacular presentation of James Whale's Frankenstein remastered, fully restored and with a stereo soundtrack. And yes -- the scene where the monster drowns the little girl is back. Also back is the line where Dr. Frankenstein proclaims, "Now I know what it feels like to be God." Karloff is stunning. Colin Clive is edgy and frighteningly intense. The accompanying documentaries and trailers are fascinating, particularly the almost 2-hour feature on disc two, "Universal Horror", a retrospective of the horror films released by Universal Studios. A must for any DVD library as this is one of the greatest horror films of all time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The 2nd Universal Horror Masterpiece
    After Bela Lugosi became a movie star playing Dracula, he was offered the role of the Frankenstein monster, but turned it down & so a other horror movie star emerged, Boris Karloff as the manufactured mistunderstood monster, truly one of the greatest horror films of all time, Karloff brings terrifying perfection to the role. A great non dialogue performance. A masterpiece of how science can be misused. If you like classic universal horror see Mary Shelley's shocking novel story in the motion picture.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Well, we've warned you!"
    All movies are dated.Some are more dated than others, of course.A film's dated quality can be its strength as well as its weakness.Much film criticism has surrounded the primitive techniques used in 1931's "Dracula" and "Frankenstein".Lack of musical score, obvious use of studio sets, theatrical acting, pedestrian use of the camera, etc.Yet I would argue that these qualities are what make these films unique and give them a dream-like, nightmarish quality, which the later, slicker and more polished sequels lacked.The sound of the Frankenstein monster's footsteps coming down the hall before his entrance, the thumping of the dirt being thrown atop the coffin in the opening sequence, all would be lost had they been interpolated in a musical score.The same goes for "Dracula"'s scattering rats, bats and night creatures among the clacking bones in the coffins.Granted, the later "Bride of Frankenstein" brilliantly used music and a far more sophisticated film technique to unfold its story, yet it was a completely different piece of art.It was much more operatic and complex and full of irony and satire as well as horror.Whereas "Bride" gave us thrills, "Frankenstein" gave us chills.

    4-0 out of 5 stars "I belong here."
    Nell Lance is not well. She has spent most of her adult life caring for her invalid mother and she is having difficulty coping now that mother has passed on. She sees her big opportunity to live a little when she is invited to the Hill House for a brief stay. This is her time to socialize, to break out of her cocoon and to prove to everyone else that she belongs in their group. Seems she has somehow gotten the wrong idea. The well known Dr. Markway (Richard Johnson) sees the recently vacated Hill House as an opportunity to prove the existence of ghosts, ghouls and/or goblins. He has invited Theo (the beautiful Claire Bloom) for her psychic ability and the skeptical Luke (Russ Tamblyn) for use of his inherited house. Nell was asked to come because of her propensity for communicating with the dead, a claim she vehemently denies. What the group finds at Hill House is worth investigating for viewers. Julie Harris is terrific as the disturbed Nell and the others turn in good performances as well. I wouldn't go so far as to say this is a scary movie, but Robert Wise's direction makes this a fairly gripping movie. I am slightly surprised by its G rating, given the intense moments and a couple of swear words. This really should be PG. You can't really go wrong if you are looking for a good haunted house movie.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Implications are Better than Any Visual Frightfest.
    This old 1963 scarefest works for those of you (myself included) who are not into the screaming gorefest of so many others' preference and prefer a more sophisticated way to get a chill or two sliding up your spine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Drama AND Action!
    This movie is set in a period where emotions are banned due to them being unpredictable and often causing unfavorable results.What follows by banning emotions and all things that would lead to emotion is a very oppressive scenario indeed.People are ordered to take a drug to drown out their emotions, and all objects (including music and books) that could lead to emotion are destroyed.As I said, very oppressive.After missing a dose of his emotion-blocking drug, Christian Bale's character sees the light, both literally and figuratively.What follows is a suspenseful action-packed plot, and ultimately a good ending.Glad our government is not like that.

    When action leaped up in mid air and dance like fighting sequences splattered on my screen, the first question I asked myself was "How come I have never heard of this movie before?"It came and went into the movie theaters like a hushed shadow, yet hundreds of outstanding five star reviews prove it was well received and it did not slip by silently.

    This is a classic Sci-Fi space movie with a great sound track. The odd "scary" sounds were made with a Theramin, a special instrument made by the father of electronic music, Bob Moog. Bob designed the Mini Moog and other classic synthesizers. (He died recently but his legacy lives on)

    Movies didn't become widescreen until 1953. This was released in 1951. The picture quality is clear and sharp. And the sound is very good. I too would have liked it better if this were a single sided disc. As for the reviews that considered Klaatu to be an outer space bully sent to preserve the "MASTER RACE", You missed the point completely. He didn't say, if we don't behave ourselves he will destroy us. That is something Gort is programmed to do. He is warning us of that. He said, if we extend our violence, extend meaning; outward into space. The earth would be reduced to a burned-out cinder. He was looking out for the well-being for all lifeforms in the universe. And sometimes it takes tough love to set us straight.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Slumming with Audrey
    This was Audrey Hepburn's big movie debut and it was a stellar one. She plays the crown princess of an unnamed European monarchy who is visiting Rome or a PR tour. She is tired of it all. She just wants to be a normal girl. She wants a holiday.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Roman Holiday

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Romantic Tale of a Disconnected Princess
    This is a story of a princess who is young to be performing the official duties of the Royal family but loves to experience the outside world. On the night of her visit to Rome, having disconnected from the real world for long, she slips away from her residence. During this little adventure she meets an American news reporter named Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck.) Audrey Hepburn offers great performance as a naïve young woman who wants to be a common person away from the pageantry she is used to. It is a sheer luck that Hepburn was cast for this role. After she auditioned for the movie, a brief chat with director William Wyler convinced him that she is the best for the job. No one has ever regretted this decision as Hepburn went on to win the Academy award. Hepburn is a natural, and remains at ease in her portrayal as a princess enjoying the real world. No wonder Academy awarded the biggest prize in Hollywood even though she was novice to a Hollywood film and this is her first movie.Originally Cary Grant was offered the lead role but casting Gregory Peck was not the best decision one could have made. Peck has made great movies but he does not shine in this film. Shooting of the film in and around Italy adds depth to the story of movie. The princess taking a ride with Bradley in a Vespa motor scooter is an iconic symbol of American cinema. Anyone who has seen the other movie of Hepburn; Breakfast at Tiffany's could see some similarities in the story of these two films as she play a free spirited woman who doesn't know what she really wants in life. The movie was written by a Hollywood Blacklisted author Dalton Trumbo who did not get credit in the original movie but the DVD released later gives credit he really deserves. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones star as Gus McCrae and Woodrow Call, aging cowboys and former Texas rangers and who organize a 2,500 mile cattle drive for one last great adventure in this excellent 1989 miniseries adaptation of Larry McMurtry's novel. The best friends, who steal the herd from a gang of Mexican cattle rustlers, drive their herd from Texas to Montana, battling horse thieves, angry Indian tribes, and a renegade half-breed killer named Blue Duck (Frederic Forrest) on a mission of revenge. The excellent cast also includes Robert Urich as cardsharp and former Ranger Jake Spoon, Anjelica Huston as McCrae's old flame Clara Allen, Danny Glover, Ricky Schroder, Diane Lane, Chris Cooper, D.B. Sweeney, Steve Buscemi, and even a small role for author Larry McMurtry. Australian director Simon Wincer shows a tremendous capacity for balancing sweeping drama and intimacy against the gorgeous landscape of the American Southwest, giving a grandly epic feel to the film despite its small-screen target and limited budget, and for forging memorable characters of even the smallest supporting parts. The heart of the drama belongs to McCrae and Call, memorably etched by Duvall and Jones as the last of the range romantics. In the age of revisionist Westerns, this excellent cattle-drive drama nicely maintains an old-fashioned feeling while still showing the dark side of the American West. Winner of seven Emmy Awards and responsible for two miniseries sequels (Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars this DVD stinks....extremely poor resolution ...remaster soon?
    Hi folks,
    5-0 out of 5 stars "What kind of an education is that?"
    Best series, movie, western of all time, period.The story is impeccable the acting is perfectly done, still the best roles that Tommy Lee and Duvall have ever done. Impossible to watch it without crying, even if its your 10th time watching it.I totally agree with other comments that the dvd needs to be remastered as the picture is not great and it is not in 5.1 sound.since it was shot for tv, I think it was only filmed in standard, non widescreen format which is tragic.But the story still is told wonderfully.Totally agree that having the actors comment on the making (though 6 hours would require a big commitment from the actors) would be awesome as well as a general cleanup of the dvd.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
    I don't expect anything more of a movie than to enjoy it and be entertained. I don't seek to psychoanalyze or offer up in-depth critique, it's only a movie. I either enjoy it or I don't. I enjoyed this immensely. I just can't find a single thing wrong with it and never tire of it. It's fantastic. It's an extraordinary story with an extraordinary cast. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars For those who would choose the red pill...
    Let me begin by saying this DVD collection is fantastic.Every conceivable bonus feature has been packed into this collection as well as the original three films and the animatrix.As good as all of this is, I feel the best added feature (worth buying the collection alone) is the commentary by the philosophers Dr. Cornel West and Ken Wilber.Although I have seen all three films many, many times, and feel I have picked up on many of the hidden meanings in the film, this commentary revealed another layer I had not previously considered.I feel this commentary alone is makes buying this set worthwhile.Having seen all three films with their commentary I must say that in the future I will most definitely re-listen to their commentary - it was that good.The other commentary by the critics however, is the polar opposite of the philosopher's commentary.The critics clearly do not get the films, and it is somewhat comical hearing their take on them.For a good explanation for why many people (critics, and normal movie-goers alike) dislike the second and third film, simply listen to the critical commentary.While I found it irritating, it does at least serve the purpose of letting the fans hear the opinion of three people arrogantly portray their misunderstandings and ignorant criticisms of these films.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
    Having everything crammed into a little box is extremely convenient. Each DVD case features a cool picture. The amount of special features is astounding, and none of the critics hold back (many people commenting the movie actually insult the third one).

    "The Matrix" is literally the BEST movie I've ever seen!! I don't know how many times I've seen it: on cinema, on TV, on VCR. Sorry, I don't have a DVD (must be the last person in the Matrix who doesn't!). So why is the movie just GREAT?
    4-0 out of 5 stars A new wave Sci-fi movie
    Well, I guess it is old now but I am always surprised how much I like this movie the more times I watch it.First time I concentrated on the hand to hand combat too much but if you can get past these guys playing patticakes with eachother, this is a great movie.The scene where Keanu and Fishburne spar is still hilarious and the set looks like it came straight form 'Fist of Legend' but it is still fun.I lked his training sequences overall.The whole computer world never really appealed to me but it's a ton of fun trying to figure things out.The shootouts are great and all of the acting is top notch.Even Keano Reeves is pretty likeable.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Possible product packaging issue
    I purchased the boxed set in mid-August 2006 and unfortunately, due to a defective disk, returned it immediately.I say unfortunately because the set was immaculate otherwise.Amazon's replacement service kindly sent a replacement set the day I was sending the original back--gotta love that; thanks Amazon!HOWEVER, the replacement was not packaged completely.My replacement set did not include individual cardboard envelopes for the three plastic hard cases.(The holder which holds the three hard cases together was there; but each hard case is further protected by a cardboard envelope, which helps keep them from rubbing against each other in the holder.This is important; because each hard case has chrome-like lettering which could rub off over time without the added protection.This is apparently a QC issue wherever the sets are assembled--I do not think Amazon was to blame).So, regrettably, I returned this set as well.Just be aware you may receive a set which doesn't contain individual cardboard envelopes for each plastic hard case.If you can live with that, it's no big deal and you will love this set--I'm just picky!Star Trek rules!And thanks again, Amazon, for your superb customer service!

    1-0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF!!!
    How long is Paramount going to milk the Star Trek name?There is NO WAY I'm going to cough up $175 for a DVD set of three seasons of ANY show.

    They are going to be re-releasing the original series with added computer generated graphics and effects.When I found this out I went to Amazon to check used copies of the original series so I would have a collection of the origial series without the added CGI.The whole series used to cost upwards to $400 at some retailers, and I was able to pick it up just now brand new off Amazon for ~$175, which is still steep for a non-fan, but is a great deal if like me you want to have a collection of the original series, especially before they add the CGI. ...

    Editorial Review

    When Samuel (Lukas Haas), a young Amish boy traveling with his mother Rachel (Kelly McGillis), witnesses the murder of a police officer in a public restroom, he and his mother become the temporary wards of John Book (Harrison Ford), a detective who's been assigned to solve the crime. After suspect lineups and mug-shot books yield nothing, Samuel, in the most memorable scene of the film, recognizes the murderer as a narcotics agent whose picture he sees in the precinct. Once Book realizes that the police chief is in on it, too, he whisks Samuel and Rachel back home to Amish country, where he himself goes into hiding as a plain Amish man. The juxtaposition between the life of the Amish and the violence of inner-city police corruption work surprisingly well for the story, and Kelly McGillis as the falling in love widow gives an almost perfect performance. Directed by Peter Weir, the film is extremely successful in drawing the viewer into its world and, accordingly, is immensely entertaining. The only thing that mars its polish is the one-dimensional, almost cartoonish handling of the upper-echelon police corruption--a subtler, more realistic treatment of this aspect of the story would have rendered the film near perfect.

    I wanted to express my disappointment with Sony for dumping these films on the market in the FULL FRAME, pan & scan format.These films should have been made available in their respective WIDESCREEN aspect ratios (2.35 for Gidget and 1.85. for the other two).The films themselves are a lot of fun, especially the first Gidget with the great Sandra Dee, but the joy is quickly snuffed out by the fact that almost half of the picture is missing.How about a PROPER release showing these films a little respect? ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good movies to start you're collection...
    These are the very films that I grew up with-that I am growing up with. Ever since I got these movies I got a tone of information. She-Wolf of London was in it's own sense a movie with "Sherlock Holmes" theme. The Wolf Man films starring Lon Chaney Jr. are excellent. Alot of people don't get the hidden message in it, Me and a couple of other friends found a ton of stuff about it. My favorite scenes definatly where the wolf man goes into an insane fight while a flood is coming. And When Sir John Tablot and The Wolf Man Fight. Werewolf of London has aspects and themes from Dr. Jekkyll and Mr. Hyde.I think it's one of the best werewolf films. Here's my werewolf collection...
    3-0 out of 5 stars Lon Chaney Jr at his best, and worst
    I purchased a while ago some of the classic Black and White Universal Studio's "horror" films from the 1930s and 40s which Universal released under their special collection called "The Legacy Collection".
    5-0 out of 5 stars beware the full moon or i think i'm a werewolf
    this collection is very good and belongs beside the frankenstein and dracula collections. the wolfman and frankenstein meets the wolfman are the two gems here and the star of both are lon chaney jr. and he is great. his wolfman is not a blood thristy creature but a man bitten by a werewolf and is doomed to be one himself till he is killed in the right way. chaney brings great sadness to the role and while you fear the wolf you feel sad for the man who doesn't want to kill but can't stop the beast inside.

    I still remember the first time I read "Gone with the Wind".I was in my native Georgia, in high school, and spent a weekend in bed with the book.Once I started reading it, I could not put it down.Margaret Mitchell's characters were sparkling with vitality and a contagious energy that made you feel as though they were your own neighbors and family!

    This is another of those movies I wonder "HOW is this a classic?". Maybe the book was a lot better than the movie! I was watching this, not expecting much, but expecting to earn my respect, the way "Scarface" or "Casablanca", movies I don't like but have earned my respect as classic movies.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Sound My Barbaric YAWP Over The Roofs Of The World
    I used to love this Peter Weir movie and now sadly it seems far too idealistic and implausible to me. I wish it didn't. I've probably seen Dead Poet's Society a dozen times and while I still think it is a beautiful motion picture in its message about how the power of the written word as a tool for free thought is a life-changing force, I can't seem to find it in me to think it's possible that a teacher could have reached teenaged boys in quite that way. Well, I guess that's why we have films, so we can see things we wouldn't in life. All this said, I do believe Dead Poet's Society is a classic. If you haven't seen it, you probably should. It is an uplifting, often gloriously beautiful, always embraceable film with a solid cast that includes Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard, and living theatrical legend, Norman Lloyd.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Raises interesting questions
    This film is superlative by every standard.Robin Williams does a brilliant job in his role as a semi-bohemian poetry teacher with a passion for challenging orthodoxy.As mentioned so many times by past reviewers, Ethan Hawke's performance is similarly powerful, as are those of the other boys.Sets and cinematography deserve praise too, for capturing the "feel" not only of the school but the era in which it is set.The script is superb as well.It captures all the angst felt by the young men as they begin to question the world they have been thrust into and their places in it.
    4-0 out of 5 stars "Captain, my captain..."
    The influx of teacher/student movies will never cease.That said there are those that succeed on every level like `A Beautiful Mind' or `Mr. Holland's Opus' and even `Dangerous Minds' to an extent.Then you have those that fail miserably.But this film is neither.It failed to move me in ways never done before, but it also carried enough weight to make the experience worth the time spent viewing it.`Dead Poets Society' is a film about being who you are despite what the rest of society wants you to be.It's about expressing yourself in the face of adversity.The idea of a bunch of male college students secretly sneaking off campus to read poetry is pretty lame and far fetched, but it's the ferocity in their eyes while in the class room that makes up for the plot.

    Editorial Review

    Arguably the greatest of American films, Orson Welles's 1941 masterpiece, made when he was only 26, still unfurls like a dream and carries the viewer along the mysterious currents of time and memory to reach a mature (if ambiguous) conclusion: people are the sum of their contradictions, and can't be known easily. Welles plays newspaper magnate Charles Foster Kane, taken from his mother as a boy and made the ward of a rich industrialist. The result is that every well-meaning or 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. Written by Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz, and photographed by Gregg Toland, the film is the sum of Welles's awesome ambitions as an artist in Hollywood. He pushes the limits of then-available technology to create a true magic show, a visual and aural feast that almost seems to be rising up from a viewer's subconsciousness. As Kane, Welles even ushers in the influence of Bertolt Brecht on film acting. This is truly a one-of-a-kind work, and in many ways is still the most modern of modern films from the 20th century.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better Than I Thought It Would Be
    You all know this of course, but Citizen Kane is #1 on The American Film Institute's Top 100. But who can honestly say that this is their favorite movie? That this film is everything a movie should be...The problem with The American Film Institute is that it's not called The Entertaining Films Institute. That's why when the list was compiled, some of the most entertaining films are towards the bottom of the list (Pulp Fiction anyone?).
