Francois Truffaunt said that Citizen Kane is the film the "probably started the largest number of filmmakers on their careers"; I also believe this to be true. Although it is not every aspect of Citizen Kane that would have attracted the filmmaker, as I feel that the characterisation and the characters are empty and heartless.
