Overview

Newspaper magnate, Charles Foster Kane is taken from his mother as a boy and made the ward of a rich industrialist. As a result, every well-meaning, tyrannical or self-destructive move he makes for the rest of his life appears in some way to be a reaction to that deeply wounding event.

Viewing Notes

Few movies would I drive an hour in traffic to during St Patrick’s Day weekend in Chicago. This is clearly one of them. Having not seen since my college film class I would not pass up the chance for a big screen viewing to kick off the Orson Welles series at MBT.

Such a magnificent film in every respect. That goes without saying. Also a different viewing for me after having visited the Hearst Castle a few years ago. So much to love and appreciate. I should really make a point to view this every year it’s that great. Welles has never been better IMO.
