They all say Citizen Kane is the best movie of all time, and while it's VERY good, I like the Shawshank Redemption better, I don't know, Shawshank is probably my all time fav, right above Apocalypse Now.
You know, the owner of that newspaper conglomerate. Can't remember which one but he was a wealthy jerk who cared only for himself. Welles wanted to portray that, and Hurst was quite enraged with the movie.
Hah! Yeah, the New York Journal or something. Well anyways, Welles plays Charles Foster Kane, pretty much a Hearst rip off who does what he wants and is almost a playboy in essence, selfish, uncaring, the BIG plot twist of the movie is what he means when he utters his last words...."Rosebud." The whole movie is spent with a reporter interviewing his friends, trying to figure out what Rosebud means, it's told through flashbacks and such.
