citizen kane
My wife is slated to teach a film course at the high school level in the Fall, but had never seen one of the films she must teach, so this afternoon, we both sat down to watch ...  Citizen Kane. I've always appreciated the film for the pillar in film history that it represents, its impressive shots, artfulness, and its narrative structure, but on a very base level of enjoyment, I've never really liked this "greatest film of all time." I'd much prefer to spend my time watching Jaws. As a literature-groomed person, Citizen Kane reads more like a book than a film with me, and that's not just a response to its length.
