So, where I'm going with this is that I watched Citizen Kane last night. Ahhh, that's more like it. I'd rather watch Orson Wells play a millionaire newspaper tycoon than have to sit through Brad Pitt disfiguring a bunch of guys any day. And while Dan and I both generally enjoyed it (although I may have caught him snoozing through a few scenes), we were a little curious as to what makes it widely considered one of the best films of all time.
From a little "Googling", it seems that what makes it so noteworthy is a lot of behind the scenes stuff like the production, cinematography, storytelling techniques, and soundtrack. Or at least that's what Wikipedia says, true or false?
3 down and 7 to go though (eek). I have a busy week of movie watching ahead of me indeed...
