I am looking to reserve Volume 1

The Saint John Free Public Library's Movie Club showed CITIZEN KANE on Saturday, February 16, 2013 as part of its ORSON WELLES MONTH, celebrating the work of the late, great actor/writer/director, and preceded by the following playlist: - Frankie Goes To Hollywood – “Welcome to the Pleasuredome” - Emerson, Lake & Palmer – “Lucky Man” - The Beatles – “Baby You’re A Rich Man” - ABBA – “Money Money Money” - Jean Knight – “Mr. Big Stuff” - Ray Stevens – “Mr. Businessman” Questions for further discussion: - Judging CITIZEN KANE by modern moviegoing standards is tricky: when it came out in 1941, many of the techniques it used were brand-new, if not revolutionary, and they have been copied or echoed by innumerable films made since then. But be honest: do you like KANE, or does it seem kinda old & familiar to you? - What do you make of Kane as a character, modeled after prominent American business tycoons like publisher William Randolph Hearst? Is he an admirable man, or ultimately foolish, or both? Does he deserve his fate? - Does KANE’s nonlinear storytelling technique, which presents Kane’s life in flashbacks, work for you, or do you reckon a more straightforward, cradle-to-grave biography would have worked better?

It's a great film... but a little overrated. My full thoughts here: http://www.everyorsonwellesmovie.blogspot.ca/2012/11/citizen-kane-1941.html
