This quiz was way more fun than the other oscar quizzes, but I don't know why...
not that i think the commentwriters on google play have the power they think they have. DO THIS OR THAT OR I WILL STOP PLAYING. You think they care? Sorry to rant haha, but some people truely think the rest of the world is there to cater to them, and actually believe others will do as they say (not as much about this comment anymore btw)

I was going to go over the rest, but mostly you are just wrong on each of them.
Of course, Welles wasn’t the first person to use these techniques but he used so many of them and used them effectively. You can tell a lot about what’s going on in just one shot. Also, not super important but a lot of the actors in the film, including Welles himself, were either brand new or had little experience with acting, and a lot of the performances are amazing.
Compare this movie to other films of the time, where they felt more like plays than cinema. Citizen Kane practically changed the way films would be made and was more groundbreaking than movies like Jurassic Park or The Matrix or Avatar.
Honestly though I'm kind of surprised they didn't give it to him. I think nearly everyone expected him to win.
