Citizen kane 2

Often recognized as the greatest movie ever made, Orson Welles’ tragic story of a man’s ambition and loss of innocence remains as spellbinding as ever. Welles portrays Charles Foster Kane, a newspaper tycoon hungry for money and power who loses all feeling for others in the process. Framed as a detective story and told in flashback, the story structure and cinematographer Gregg Toland’s deep-focus photography set a standard for film noir. The story was not-so-secretly based on the life of newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst, who was so displeased with the film that he tried to stop its distribution. Fortunately, he was not successful.
