Lecture 4 – Film and Critical Thinking and The Discourse of Film

“Citizen Kane” (1941, Orson Welles, Dir; RKO Studios) is widely considered to be the greatest American film, if not rhe greatest film of all film history. Both American and European, Latin American, Canadian, and Japanese filmmakers all hail “Citizen Kane” by writer and director Orson Welles, as a great American film that sets standards for cinematography, writing, direction, sound design, acting, and editing, that are still largely unbroken and largely unsurpassed–at the very least, this film sets the marks that filmmakers must aim at and seek to equal in order to be considered serious artists and technicians.

  Both these films do two incredible things:

1. LANGUAGE (and thus diuscourse) are far more important that any othe element, although both films slyly use both sound design and action & interest to keep audience attention.
2. IDENTITY (as opposed to conformism) are the major themes of these two films in very different ways, but nevertheless focusing primarily on the two prortagonoists’ struggles to be free, to know what it true, and to reject what they have been told they should and rebel against who they feel and what they feel is controlling them.
