Is Citizen Kane the Greatest Movie Ever?

Classic Movie Gush Logo

For as long as I can remember, film critics and aficionados have considered Citizen Kane to be the greatest movie ever made. For years I just snubbed my nose at the thought without ever asking why.

When I finally did become curious during college, the only adults around simply muttered their version of “whatevs” and said they had never seen it or couldn’t remember much about it.

I’ve watched the 1941 classic a couple times now. While I believe there’s ALWAYS room to debate the greatest of almost anything, I understand what is great about Citizen Kane. We cover that very thing in this week’s Classic Movie Gush, our 10th episode! *balloons, confetti, and whatnot*

Have you watched Citizen Kane and what do you think? 

Classic Movie Gush is a regular feature in which we revisit/introduce classic movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Catch up on all the movies we’ve talked about by visiting the Official Classic Movie Gush Page.
