    "Probably the most unfortunate thing that ever happened to `Citizen Kane' was that it found itself atop the AFI top film list. Now, no one can simply enjoy the film. Everyone feels compelled to scrutinize it and make a decision about its greatness." 3 years 9 months ago

    The only reason people are calling this over-rated is because it's been given a label that is impossible to live up to, built on the assumption that any movie could possibly be the be-all, end-all, greatest of all time. Yes, it’s good, very good. 5/5, 10/10, whatever, but is it the greatest film of all time? No, because nothing ever will be. 5 years 3 months ago
