I’m sure there is little that I can say that has not been said by someone, sometime, somewhere about this remarkable film.
One scene, in particular, stands out for me as it relates to our present time. The scene is a montage of Kane seated at dinner with his wife and we watch the years go by as they eat. The moment when she expresses concern about what “people will think…” and Kane the newspaper editor’s response strikes a cold, prophetic chord as I watch the actions of media today.
Here is the scene.
