I doubt that too many people from my generation took time out of their lives to watch the legendary archived "best movie ever made". Most probably don't even know what it's about. Nowadays, it's a chore to watch and find satisfaction in something that was made 77 years ago. In my opinion; it can be understood (with an open mind) why CITIZEN CAIN was a milestone achievement in 1941. It was the genesis of well-made biographical dramas, such as LINCOLN and SCHINDLER'S LIST; nevertheless, in this particular instance, I had a very difficult time appreciating the historical significance of a genre that has been enhanced ten-fold over time.
