I’m not sure how I’ve gotten this far in life without ever having seen Citizen Kane start to finish, in one sitting so when I heard it was playing at the CIA’s Cinematheque I told V we absolutely had to go.

Because I knew the basic plot and the ending (I so do love spoiling things for myself) I felt I was better able to appreciate the films cinematic qualities a lot more because I wasn’t trying to figure out and keep straight everything that was going on.

I’m happy to have finally crossed off AFI’s #1 movie on their 100 in 100 list but I still have a lot to go. Maybe I’ll keep at it and be able to cross off all 100 by years end : )
