Citizen Kane

May 01, 2004

So I watched Citizen Kane on DVD last week with the infant.

I watched the first half of it while feeding him bottles and babysitting earlier this week. We finished it Saturday night as I was holding cranky boy and J. was doing housework.

I knew the ending already, which meant that I watched the movie as if I were re-reading a book, looking for the forshadowing and interpreting each new revelation in terms of the known sadness at the end.

I am glad I watched it, and I can see why it is such an influential movie.

Afterwards, the radio station in my head began to play Tracy Chapman's song 'Mountains of things."
