The Anti-Citizen Kane
16 June 2012 | by yawn-2See all my reviews

Well, this is the best spin ol' fascist, racist press baron Hearst will ever get on the most benign part of his life story. Since the man's lasting public image has been almost entirely shaped by Citizen Kane since the 1940's, it's probably good that something like this film is around as a modest counterpoint. Never mind that even some of the guides at the castle will tell you that the Hearst family's primary reasons for donating it to the state were more about tax avoidance than any great desire to share it with the 99%. Beautifully made and quite spectacular on the IMAX screen at Hearst Castle, I can't imagine why anyone would want to own a copy, unless there is no possibility of ever seeing it there.
