This video is fun and awesome, just one thing; If you were to ask most Americans what the best film of all time is, they might say Citizen Kane, and although it's an amazing film, undoubtebly a work of complete genius; it's usually only Americans who call it the best film ever made really, as it's a very very American film that American people can relate to. (also, a lot of the people who say it's the best film ever made have never even seen it)
In Europe we have Felini, in Japan they have Kurosawa, Wells is great but uhm, he's not a very prolific or lasting film-maker and I'd say the influence of Citizen Kane on modern cinema is a lot less than some people would like to believe, especially people educated in American film-schools. I'd even go as far as to say Kubrick is a far more influential and a technically better director than Wells, same with Wilder, Hitchcock (a Brit but a maker of American films) and maybe even David Lynch. Don't get me wrong, I love Citizen Kane. Just addressing Lupa's hypothetical question about 'what's the best movie ever made' likely to be answered by 'Citizen Kane', from a European perspective. And again, awesome/funny vid!
i love that song from black box- everybody everbody on the sound track . must be a guilty pleasure
Lupa is such a hipster :) Oh Citizen Kane? Nah, I'd rather watch Cool as Ice. B-)
Something tells me her opinion would shift big time, if the audience hated Citizen Kane and loved
Cool as Ice instead
