Chris Dunbar Professor James English 101A 14 October 2003 Citizen Kane Intrusion of Privacy The movie Citizen Kane gave its audience many interesting and creative shots and scenes It was able to tease peoples minds and was far ahead of its time as far as special effects are concerned All of the fancy and amazing shots that the movie has do raise a question though The camera was able to go everywhere whether there was a character or not The camera was the sole character that truly had its own unique characteristics What if the media was actually able to intrude into someones personal life now as well as it did in the film The first example of this intrusion of privacy is set in the first chapter of the movie I call the scene a chapter because scenes in a DVD version of the film are called chapters therefore I will now call each scene a chapter since I watched the DVD version of the movie In the very beginning of the first chapter the camera shows an iron fence with a dark backdrop On the fence in big bold letters is the phrase NO TRESPASSING this gives the feeling to the audience that guests might want to turn back to where they came The camera only hesitates long enough to read the sign and then proceeds to go over the sign and into the property The camera then proceeds without interruption to Mr Kanes personal bedroom in his palace The camera is the only one in the room with Mr Kane as he utters his last words Rosebud is less read from the lips of the passing man as the camera is so close you can count the whiskers on Mr Kanes moustache Another example of the medias intrusion in the film is in the third chapter After the news reel about Charles Foster Kanes death there is a discussion between the news
