Those who have the excellent R1 release of Citizen Kane may be wondering about the new R2 release. All I can say is buy it. Here's why: A different transfer from the R1 version. It's basically a 'digitally slightly cleaned up' version from an interpositive that's been lying in the BFI film vaults. I'm not a film restoration fiend, but IMHO it looks more like a film than the R1 version, that's a bit *too* clean (almost to the point of being antiseptic in places). Sound also is good without being synthesised. A different commentary track - not better than the R1, but different. A *superb* 1 hour documentary on the making of the movie. It's basically film-making 101 level, but what's wrong in that? It gives you the clearest, most sensible introduction to the movie I've seen without giving away any major spoilers. Plus, there's some excellent visual illustrations of the special effects, etc. A break-down of the budget for the making of the movie, and some good written biographies of the principa actors and crew. Well worth getting.
