It has the greatest fight of all-time.

Roddy Piper and Keith David just beating the hell out of each other for 10 minutes.

Plus, it's a John Carpenter flick.

and Lance, I'll make the superthread when I get back home later.

I like Welles, and I understand that Kane was obviously very influential at the time, and for coming decades - but it's not one of my favourite movies. It's always boring seeing it top lists.

LMP!

You MUST watch A Clockwork Orange.

Find a way.

Get it done.

The first transport is away.

Exactly! I mean it's a good movie and all and for it's time I'm sure it was very impressive I guess but the way people go on about it...

Does it have artistic merit?

It changes almost daily, usually when I go "what the fuck? Why is x ahead of x or why is this one not there?"

then there's a movie like A Clockwork Orange, which I thought was mind-blowing, but I can't watch that over and over again. I'd end up like Alex after he was brainwashed.

You mean like a nice well-kept young British lad?

But anyway, I'm not sure I'd ever had the peace of mind enough to create a numbered list that long to begin with.

I don't know why I'm so late to this thread, but I just wanted to say a couple things.

It's really easy to take issue with Citizen Kane, but the bottom line is that it's really hard to come up with something that better deserves the #1 spot. The Godfather? Not nearly innovative enough. Casablanca? Too mainstream, and not directed by an auteur.

It's like arguing about Sgt. Peppers. It may not be your favorite album, but it was a breakthrough at a time when the idea of the "album" as artistic statement was still young. It had a weight that wasn't widely found at the time. Citizen Kane is a breakthrough in other ways. While cinema was no longer in its infancy, and other artists had shown some of its capabilities, Welles expanded on every possibility that had been explored in the medium up until that point. If you haven't studied this in a film class or listened to any of the DVD commentaries, it's hard to truly understand what is so important about Kane.

All this would mean nothingif the film was some dry slog. There is a vitality present in every frame that reflects the young filmmaker's excitement in exploring a new medium, a man who had already revolutionized radio and theatre trying his able hands at something combining the two with a much greater force. For such a revered classic it's funny, with high and lowbrow comedy, and pretty damned enthralling. There's melodrama, romance, suspense, and a great little speech by Mr. Bernstein about regret that anyone can relate to, and will chill you to the bone. I'll leave the last words to the esteemed film critic Pauline Kael: "Citizen Kane is more fun than any great film in memory."

It's a long and arduous process.

Speaking of Citizen Kane, I know it's buried in the movie cabinet in some old, dusty VHS. I'll wait until the DVD comes in from NetFlix to watch it.
