Citizen Kane

Citizen Kane
1941 -- Not Rated
Director: Orson Welles
Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton, Everette Sloan

No greatest films list should be considered complete without this film being included somewhere near the top. Under Orson Welles direction this critically acclaimed film is considered by many to be the defining example of what a movie should be. Though Welles' performance was exemplary, it is clearly his direction that causes this film to stand out. His use of contrasting lights and darks as well as unusual camera angles all contribute to making this film a first rate classic.
