Welles knew how to change the way a story could be told in a film and this is why Citizen Kane was such an iconic film. Citizen Kane was such an unusual film at the time it was released for the reason that most films in the 1940’s had the same storyline and plot but Citizen Kane was different. Orson Welles made the audience feel smart by showing them what was really going on in the film story. By allowing the story and plot to differ Welles had a range of ideas which he could play out.

Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre. Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time.
It was incredibly written in my opinion. Along with the stellar writing, I also believe the performances were outstanding as well, Especially from the protagonist Jami, Who was played by Addison Timlin, This was down to Alfonso 's Directing which was complimented by the cast of the film.

George Lucas did not get to be where he is today without the inventions of new technology and the innovations of the film industry. To research and discuss such a rich topic of history is a journey into one of the world’s biggest, and most fascinating industries, the industry of film. The history of film and cinema dates back as far as the early 20th century (The picture show man). The history of motion pictures begins when going to the movies was not even an idea or a possible activity. The first films were pictures being reflected off of a spinning surface with a small light.
Another key point, is how do movies relate us a people? The reason why we feel so connected to movies is because they seem so realistic. Movies tend to relate to the world’s problems. For instance, movies like “Selma” and “American Sniper” demonstrate the important problems going on in the world (Guida, page 1). Furthermore, films seem so realistic because they cause us to create a connection with the characters and settings around them.
The same thing injects in our brains but each of them reacts differently, for this reason we have difference in opinions. Feature films on the other hand is already in the spotlight. As we 'people' love colourful bright videos played in a proper way with great music, sound effects and vfx. But I am not highlighting films with these few points only.

Multilingualism in films The presence of several languages in fiction is also nothing new: literary multilingualism can be traced back to the Middle Ages (Delabastita, Grutman 14). Before the 1980s, as a result of the mentioned above monolingual ideal, multilingualism in literature was however shed in a negative light and was seen as “an unconventional domain of study” (Ibid 11). Awareness and research in the area of multilingualism then started to rise and allowed it to be considered a legitimate subject. In an era of increasing globalisation, multilingualism permeates daily life and is to be found in a wide range of fields such as in opera, songs, quotations, the theatre and in films (Meylaerts and Serban 204). Both European and Hollywood films requiring the audience to deal with communication in more than one language emerged at the same time as cinema, in the early 1930s (Heiss 209).
Nationalistic films were also in vogue despite early restrictions on films being too subversive.” However, according to the (Juan Malaya. (2011).

Two Swiss entrepreneurs introduced film shows in Manila as early as 1897.” The documentary films showed recent events and natural calamities in Europe. Independent cinema however, began already when the very first movies were made in the country, because the first movies were short films produced by professionals.
