Topic: Citizen Kane

Order Description

Film critic and theorist Andr é Bazin described Citizen Kane as “a discourse on method.” What does he mean by this and what specifically makes Citizen Kane “the best film of the 20th Century,” per AFI and other film organizations? In answering these questions, think of yourself as a professional film critic writing for a film journal. Use 3 quotes from the book understanding movies by Louis Giannetti Page 489-520 to support your answer and compare and contrast the synthesis of Citizen Kane with at least 3 of the last movies viewed in class (i.e. The Shining, The Usual Suspects, Do the Right Thing, Run Lola Run).
