This television special certainly isn't anything special but for fans of the film it's worth watching. Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, Roger Corman, John Frankenheimer, Ridley Scott, Ruth Warwick and Robert Wise are among the people interviewed as they talk about the ground- breaking aspect of Orson Welles' CITIZEN KANE.
If you've never seen the film then this special, which was made for the film's fiftieth anniversary, will certainly appeal to them as it does a good job at telling the history of the film as well as the controversy it and Welles fell into. From here we learn about the ground- breaking work that the director did and how it also ruined his career. If you're a fan of Welles or the film then this is worth watching and there's no question that the interviews are nice. It's always fun watching legends talk about other legends so this will appeal to fans.
