Citizen Kane and Me and Orson Welles -

Upon seeing the syllabus that we would be watching Citizen Kane during the first class, I wasn't sure how I felt about that. Although I had heard of it, I never knew much about it at all. When we were watching the first five minutes of Eraserhead, for some reason I thought it was Citizen Kane (somehow I ignored the introduction). I remembered that the movie was two hours long and although it was interesting I didn't know how I would make it through two hours of it on a night when I could have easily fallen asleep standing up. When Citizen Kane started, I have to say I was intrigued from the beginning. It kept me the entire time and made me laugh. I actually enjoyed the film.

At home watching Me and Orson Welles, I felt the same way. I had no idea it was so recent and was presently surprised by both movies.

I will give Eraserhead a try at some point if I can find it.

  1. I will be happy to loan you the DVD of "Eraserhead" if you still feel like it. Like "Kane" it is a one-of-a-kind film.
