Personal Quote:

[on "Citizen Kane"]: Kane" is ostensibly an attempt to resolve the complexities of a legendary man's character - it unfolds as a search for the meaning of his dying word, 'Rosebud' - but it is actually a piece of prestidigitation which makes the character disappear behind a flourish of artifice and mystery.

Trivia:

He achieved his first renown as a film critic whilst living in Madison, Wisconsin, where he was also a film society organizer. He relocated to Los Angeles following the break-up of his first marriage and determined to get into films if possible, making a point of interviewing as many film directors as possible (many of these were published in film magazines).
