Such a wonderful movie, one of the best I've ever seen... if it's not the best. This DVD is great, but I'm disappointed about the fact that there's no Widescreen version. Good DVD.

-Louis-Philippe quote

There is no widescreen version because it was filmed at a 1.33:1 aspect ratio, so what you see on the DVD is what you would have seen in the theater way back in 1941.

-Lord Pachelbel quote

No, thank you.

Review Citizen Kane...has the best of everything: a great director and star, innovative cinematography, dreamlike--even nightmarish--art direction, a sonorous musical score, a skillful screenplay...a psychological/narrative form that predates our contemporary "psycho-histories" by at least 40 years, and best of all, a memorial word that, when spoken, recalls the film out of thin air...

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review It is one of the miracles of cinema that in 1941 a first-time director, a cynical, hard-drinking writer, an innovative cinematographer, and a group of New York stage and radio actors were given the keys to a studio and total control, and made a masterpiece. Citizen Kane is more than a great movie; it is a gathering of all the lessons of the emerging era of sound...
