Citizen Kane

Director: Orson Welles
Starring: Orson Welles, Joseph Cotton, Agnes Moorehead
Duration: 119 min

From the opening sequence, Orson Welles' first film – the most famous debut in all cinema – is replete with stylistic tropes and flourishes which evoke the German cinema of the '20s and '30s. Long recognised as the ancestor of the modern sound film, the fragmented biography of an American newspaper magnate is as sophisticated in the aural as the visual dimension, marking the most striking technical and stylistic advances since Fritz Lang's M. We present this landmark film in a restored version.
