Citizen Kane (film)

I've avoided seeing this on TV for so long in the expectation that someone would eventually show it full size. I was so looking forward to it.

I suppose a little disappointment was inevitable. It might have been better if I hadn't known who Rosebud was from the start.

I'm not saying it's bad. I'm glad I went to see it. It's affecting. It made me think. A bit.

It's just that from what's generally agreed to be the best film of all time, I was expecting something a bit more.

Maybe you had to see it at the time. Or maybe I just didn't get it.
