This one came down to the wire.
– Vertigo: 13 votes
– Citizen Kane: 11 votes
It was neck-and-neck the entire way, but it seems the majority of you agree with Sight & Sound’s selection of Vertigo over Citizen Kane. I was honestly expecting the opposite, but there’s no denying that both are fantastic films.
This Week’s Poll: I’m still riding the high of seeing a rare screening of The Master, so my question for you this week is related to that: What is Paul Thomas Anderson’s best film? I debated on including The Master since it hasn’t received a wide release yet, but I added it just in case there are some who are firmly passionate about that being his best work. I have a hunch as to what will win, but maybe we’ll get a surprise or two.
No time for a full weekend roundup this week, but I was able to catch a screening of The Window at the Noir City Chicago festival on Saturday. It was a fun noir in which Bobby Discroll — on loan from Walt Disney Studios — played the lead. I’m going to try to go back once or twice this week before the event is over, and If I do I will be sure to do a full writeup.
Have a great week everyone!
