Capital Celluloid 2018 - Day 26: Fri Jan 26

Citizen Kane (Welles, 1941): Close-Up Cinema, 7.30pm

This screening is part of the Orson Welles season at Close-Up Cinema from January 15th to 30th. ou can find all the details here.

Chicago Reader review: 
'What can you say about the movie that taught you what movies were? The first time I saw Kane I discovered the existence of the director; the next dozen or so times taught me what he did—with lights and camera angles, cutting and composition, texture and rhythm. Kane (1941) is no longer my favorite Orson Welles film (I'd take Ambersons, Falstaff, or Touch of Evil), but it is still the best place I know of to start thinking about Welles—or for that matter about movies in general.'
