My reaction to Citizen Kane is that it was just alright. I didn’t really enjoy the beginning at all, but as it got closer to the end things got way more interesting. I think Charles is a man that is depressed and going through some separation issues. ( with his mother). I think him being basically sold away by his mother and living with an abusive father really took a toll on his mental health, resulting in his constant need of trying to please people. I think the most revealing flashbacks were Kane’s. They really gave us a background of Kane which helped put pieces together a lot. I think a similarity between Kane and Loman is that they are both constantly trying to please everyone which eventually leads them to madness (even though Loman’s is a disease, but that is beside the point)
