Citizen Kane (1941)
10/10
Rosebud as monument of one's inner grieving and wishes.
28 July 2017
Warning: Spoilers
Citizen Kane is one of those films you hear about all the time, see them in various polls, TV shows, other films, in one word you know it exist but you never saw it for yourself but do not let that disappoint you. Citizen Kane is terrifying film with its revolutionary filming techniques, new method of acting, visual style, phenomenal make up and behind all of that is just simple yet powerful story of love (or lack of it to be precise). Orson Welles was just 25 when he made this film, but that was enough to cement him in cinemas history as one of its strongest titans. Although film was reviewed positive by the critics, it was commercial failure, but like all Welles films, its just like a bottle of wine. As time pass, it will be only better and better. It took years later for people and film critics to appreciate this masterpiece as without a doubt, most revolutionary film ever made. As I mentioned earlier this film is all about love and innocence, as the final world of media mogul Charles foster Kane ushered a search for their significance which led to mystery on ones life. Kane was man that had everything but in the end he had nothing only for his memories. That led us from his last word Rosebud to the end of the film where we realized that Kane become catatonic and lost after he remembered time when he had all, no materialistic, but inner riches:family and love. I don't think any word can explain a man's life.

Orson Welles, thank you!

True Romance (1993)
10/10
Perfect scenario paired with terrifying cast and dialogue makes this one of best movies ever made!
28 July 2017
True Romance is obscure film. Film was unfortunate to come at the time in which huge blockbusters and award winning film were slowly coming to screen, there of it was forgotten. All people to who I recommended this film never heard about it, and when they saw it, they only have one word: SUPERB! Tarantino who decided to split Natural born killers and True Romance scripts (which ere basically same script ) made terrifying job at it, but real star behind film is late Tony Scott. Without a doubt, this is best film Scott has ever made, and that can be seen in whole film, from cast to score and even ending which is best thing that Scott decided to do, despite Tarantino's wishes, but even Tarantino himself was pleased at the end of it. Scott gave himself into the film and created cult masterpiece that will never be forgotten. Cast is terrifying. Cristian Slater before he become second rate actor and Patricia Arquete had believable chemistry on screen which made whole film. Supporting cast including Gary Oldman ( In his best role ever put to screen), Christopher Walken, James Gandolfini, Denis Hopper not to mention others, made beautiful ensemble cast which was not very well known at the time, but today, they are all first class actors. I could write about this film for hours, but in the end I can only say that watch this film and enjoy one of best films ever made. Live fast, die young, be a ice looking corpse!
