Citizen Kane ★★★★★

Like, I understand how the popular conception of this film arrived at "that stuffy movie critics and academics like"; yes it is old, and yes academics like it. But it just feels so wrong. This thing is ten times more punk-rock than all of the pop cinema released this year combined, and the fact that it isn't often seen as such really speaks to a wider issue with how we're trained to watch old cinema, as if people weren't capable of being young and edgy prior to 1967.
