Storyline

This film follows a group of anonymous young people on an apparently random journey through a disjointed San Francisco cityscape. Along their travels they encounter a succession of madmen and eccentrics, portrayed by various West Coast performance artists, whose impassioned monologues and improvisations satirize the institutions of contemporary American society.

excellent art film
29 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Citizen is one of the most underrated, unknown art films of the past 25 years. It is brilliantly disjointed, thoughtful, artistic and thematically woven with strings of contemporary street performers (including Whoopi Goldberg in her first film appearance) by a group of talented young actors on a journey through the craziness and beauty of life in San Francisco. It is more reminiscent of experimental German films from the 20s and 30s or Fellini films, like Amarcord, which comment on their contemporary society by taking you on a journey through it. Citizen is an undiscovered classic and a San Francisco cult favorite.
