Yet another attempt to deconstruct the making of CITIZEN KANE. Will it work?

The single trailer on YouTube presents some good actors in stylish clothes and sets—but my spider-sense tingled a few times.

We shall see!

Clever, gorgeous b&w trailer... but this is the type of subject matter I'd rather see in documentary form.  Or read in non-fiction.

Oh great, another 24 year-old Orson Welles played by a guy who's almost 40.

People just cannot grasp the precociousness of young Welles. Casting middle-aged men as the boy genius might be the easiest shorthand to get across Welles's improbable gravity during his Mercury days, but despite his sonorous voice and imposing persona, Welles was very much a kid. I've always wanted to see an actor convey the infuriating youth of the guy at his early peak.

The trailer didn't do much for me but Fincher is guaranteed quality in my book.
