    Spoiler Endings: Citizen Kane


    by askmen

    Orson Wells was one of the Hollywood "originals" and his masterpiece "Citizen Kane" held audiences' attention for newly two hours and then pulled the rug out from under them. The entire film was a journey to find out what Kane's final word "Rosebud" meant and then we find out it was his childhood sled.

    The twist was so elegant and simple at the same time that it worked on a number of levels and became as a part of film history as the movie itself. That's impressive in its own right and something incredibly rare in present day cinema.
