Citizen Kane [electronic resource]: A Critical Analysis by Robert McKee

TVF International (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
According to outspoken film critic Robert McKee, any greatness of Citizen Kane must lie in its style; substance, he argues, is distinctly lacking. In this program, McKee skewers the content of cinema's sacred cow and charges Orson Welles with artistic overkill, dubiously praising the movie's cinematic effects as "a virtuoso display of camera technique, declamatory symbols, and bravura sound devices-all screaming for attention." Numerous film clips are used to explore Welles' signature camera work, while commentary by renowned director Ken Russell and Boston University's Raymond Carney adds a touch of balance to this controversial deconstruction.
