Better than Citizen Kane?
16 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of all of the films of the past century, many have been dubbed "The Greatest"... Citizen Kane, Gone With The Wind, and Psycho have all vied for this coveted title. However, all three of these films, as well as every other movie ever made in history, pales in comparison to The Greatest Movie Ever Made, which is not only an instant classic, but also a genuine hope for the future of film and all high art in general. One can only assume that all future discussions of art, truth, and soul will use this film as a frame of reference to what perfection can be. The Greatest Movie Ever Made is a cinematic masterpiece that not only encapsulates the essence of renowned art and outstanding film, but encapsulates life itself. 10/10 (and I never give tens!)
