Welles’ endlessly rewarding masterpiece about the life and times of a media tycoon success on many levels, not least as both a philosophically sophisticated meditation on the fundamental isolation of human existence and a brilliant examination of how power manifests itself in domestic, professional, political and sundry other relationships. The two aspects are brought together in Kane’s stop-at-nothing determination to feel he matters.
