Critical Analysis Essay
posted by Petra on .
In regards to Citizen Kane, with the critical analysis question being "Discuss the idea(s) developed by the director(s) regarding the significance of an individual’s perspective"
and my answer being
"In Citizen Kane, Orson Welles develops the idea that a person’s perspective about what is most important in life may be affected by their history. Charles Foster Kane’s character demonstrates compensation in the present for pains of the past in such a way he sets himself up for his own demise."
What are three good sturdy topics I can use to write about in my 3 paragraphs?
It has been a long time since I saw Citizen Kane, but to support your thesis, if Wells believed that, then he should have reflected on individual history glimpses to explain Kane's attitudes and behaviours. I would look for examples of that.
