In the interests of keeping your mind from the five distressing points below, feel free to distract yourself by opening this door (well, alright, clicking on the link in the picture) and entering the world of Orson Welles’ wonderful fourth-wall-breaking trailer for Citizen Kane.  Though less well known, it’s obviously an influence on, and in my opinion better than, the legendary (and still brilliant) Hitchcock Psycho trailer.  It’s still extraordinary that, at about the time this was made, Welles was still being briefed by his personal assistant and Greg Tolland  about the difference between an establishing shot and a close-up. Sit back and be comforted by two portly geniuses making great, form-challenging art…in order to advertise two works of great, form-challenging art…
