  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Complete Citizen Kane

    Much more than "The making of Citizen Kane", this doc is of great interest to any fan of the great filmmaker Orson Welles. Included are interviews with Miriam Geiger (who says she taught Welles how movies are made), Pauline Kael in her Oregon St. home in Berkeley (currently on the market!) and a glimpse at the version hideously colorized by Ted Turner (never released, thankfully). Must-see for Citizen Kane fans.
