The Great Citizen Kane Debate, Coming Soon to a Blog Near You.

Citizen Kane.  Greatest film ever made or the most overrated?  One can find rabid advocates on both sides of this debate.   Now the fine folks over at True Classics have decided to help bring those rabid advocates out of the cyber-woodwork they have been hiding in (not that any cinephile needs a reason to talk incessantly about film).  How will they do this, you ask?  Well, with The Great Citizen Kane Debate, that's how.  The object is simple as can be.  Somewhere, or somewhen between now and November 13, simply post a piece, either defending the classic film or decrying it, at whichever website/blog you happen to be associated with.  Send a link to said piece/post to those aforementioned fine folks over at True Classics before November 13.  And you can even win a prize!  Each entry will be judged on their individual merits and a winner will be announced at the end of the month.  All the details and various sundry items can be found over at True Classics (in the links above).  Hopefully this event will get some heated debating going on.  As a grand defender of the greatness of this Wellesian Masterpiece (and yes, that did need to be capitalized!) I too plan to toss my hat in the ole ring.  Hope to see you there.
