My rating: *****
My assessment (the first 101 words at least): This movie has earned it’s status of one of the best movies of all time. It earns it due to it’s fantastic and unique camera angles, it’s ingenious method of unveiling a complex character such as Charles Foster Kane through the view of those who were closest to him, and due to the great acting by all of cast. This film is actually a useful tool to help me realize that a film can be fantastic without being your favorite film. From a film critic’s standpoint, this film is absolutely perfect. However, this film is not a personal favorite of mine.
