It should be even funnier than that terrible documentary THE BATTLE OVER CITIZEN KANE.
Mr. Thomson's recent piece on CITIZEN KANE lists it as the #5 Art House movie of all time and includes these profound insights:
...that it was a film ultimately about his own flawed glory ("There, but for the grace of God, goes God," people said);
...that he cared more about being outrageous than he did about the money.
...And Welles would prove not only self-destructive, but also his own worst enemy...
...It breathed the unAmerican gospel: see what one man can do, see how films can be owned and authored not by the factory, but by brilliant minds bent on self-expression.
...In Kane and Welles alike, there was the same rueful mixture of genius and lack of self-belief.
