I'm sorry, but this movie should not be mentioned in the same light as Citizen Kane.
well, that's your opinion, and you're entitled to it...
however, I just saw FF:TSW, and I think it's fantastic!
I agree with the reviewer, this is truly the right movie at the right time! Highly recommended!

Back in 1940, "Citizen Kane" reinvigorated the language of cinema with Orson Welles’s input of new filmmaking vocabulary. Even earlier, D. W. Griffith’s "Birth of a Nation" changed viewing habits, expanding audiences’ expectations of a film’s running time from under an hour to over three hours. The movies’ screenplays probably offer little new or special to the reader, but Welles and Griffith made their contributions via the way they presented their material. To this day, filmmakers the world over use techniques introduced by the aforementioned works.
The reviewer was just talking about how revolutionary the filmmaking techniques were. Anyhow, it's a very detailed review, which is nice for folks thinking about this disc.
That level of attention to detail is visible on the screen. I love the triangular area between Aki’s eyes and nose, and Aki is as gorgeous of a creation as any painted Renaissance beauty, as enigmatic as the Mona Lisa, and (hopefully) as iconic as the Venus De Milo.
Aki was well done, but come on
