A bad 80-year-old review of 'Citizen Kane' has been unearthed, making 'Paddington 2' officially a better movie

La base de datos de reseñas en línea Rotten Tomatoes ha descubierto una reseña negativa de hace 80 años de “Ciudadano Kane,” despojar al clásico cinematográfico de su puntuación perfecta entre los críticos y degradarlo por debajo de películas que incluyen “Paddington 2” y “The Terminator.

Orson Wellesmasterpiece is widely considered one of the most important titles in movie history, pioneering a number of filmmaking techniques that are still in use today.
But it apparently underwhelmed one critic for the Chicago Tribune, cuyo lukewarm review has come back to tarnish the movie’s legacy eight decades after it was written.
    ‘Citizen Kanepresents an almost clinical dissection of a complete egotist,” the review reads. It goes on to dismiss the film’s use of moody sets: “I only know it gives one the creeps and that I kept wishing they’d let a little sunshine in.

          The write-up notes the hype that already surrounded the movie on its release, but the critic was nonetheless unmoved. “‘Citizen Kanefails to impress critic as greatest ever filmed,” the headline reads.

He also starred in the movie, and his directorial creativityalong with cinematographer Gregg Toland’s distinctive deep-focus frames and unusually angled shotsrevolutionized movie-making.
