One of my 21 goals for the year is to watch (or re-watch) 21 classic movies. This blog post is where I'll keep track of my list and my thoughts about each movie!
1. Citizen Kane
I had two motivations for watching this movie - 1. It is consistently rated as one of the best movies of all time, and 2. A recent movie on Netflix shows a behind the scenes look at making Citizen Kane and I knew I couldn't watch that without watching the original. Even so, I wasn't super looking forward to it - it's an old movie and, I don't know, I figured it was probably overrated. However, I found I really enjoyed it! I loved the way the story was told - through flashbacks and people exploring the life of the titular character after his death. It was well-paced, well-acted, and the makeup to make people look older was well done (although not filming in Hi Def gives them an advantage for sure.) I am glad I have now seen this one!
