15 years ago @ Film School Rejects - Should Citizen Kane Be... · 2 replies · +1 points

In my 40 years on this planet I have heard over and over how 'great' Citizen Kane is. I've given it 3 full viewings because I thought there must be something wrong with ME for not seeing the genius of the film. It is one of the most boring and emotionless movies I've seen (critique amped up to match the level of hyperbole).

Forcing kids to watch, read, or listen to anything really only succeeds in increasing the chances that they will despise the very thing you are pushing on them. Let people discover the film for themselves and make their own decisions.

I, for one, have given this film a chance, and can honestly and unapologetically say I didn't care for it.
