Citizen Kane

Honestly I don’t understand why this movie was made, I don’t see the purpose of it. It wasn’t a terrible film, but I wouldn’t watch it again. There were many things that I wasn’t expecting to happen throughout the film. There were good and bad moments, and some that were in between. For example, the main good thing for Kane is he is a millionaire and that must be pretty great. Kane has a gorgeous house and many other luxuries as well to keep him satisfied. Then we have the bad things, like his family situation growing up was pretty tragic for him. He was accused of having an affair with Susan, a upcoming singer which put bad publicity on him. Nothing ever really went his way and he didn’t even want his fortune. At the end, his wife even left him because of his actions, but he is too blame for it. I think regarding the American dream, anyone can live that. Not everyone can enjoy the American dream though, and not everyone wants it. Kane got the American dream and wasn’t happy with it. The American dream is far from what it is believed to be, and isn’t all happy and rainbows like people choose to believe, it comes with issues. Charles is not happy with it because the reason for his money is not a happy one. His parents sent him away to live with a banker and didn’t tell him the truth. They told Kane he was going on trips to New York, Chicago, and other places. Imagine the impact a lie like that could impact a person’s train of thought. The money he was living with was an inheritance from his terrible parents on his 25th birthday, and that probably hurt him. Kane wasn’t used to having loads of cash like he ended up with either. I think he would have rather not had the money, because his parents didn’t want him. Kane also didn’t have the best experience with relationships either because he had the audacity to write a bad review on his own wife’s singing, who does that? Kane was a sad person deep down and i think it is safe to say it is mainly because of his childhood. In conclusion, this film lives you an idea of the way the world really can be and how devastating it can be for anyone, even rich people. Everyone is dealing with things no one knows about.
