  2. If I am confined to one thought about “Citizen Kane,” it’s this: “Citizen Kane” is one of the finest, if not “the” finest film ever made. Orson Welles earned his place in cinematic history when he presented the world with this iconic masterpiece.

  3. I see, now, that I am not “confined to one thought” about Citizen Kane. I won’t add another, however, because my first thought really expressed all I needed to say. I will not express what I find to be the magnificent aspects of the film in this venue, for the obvious reasons. I will, however, state my opinion about this site. I think that “FilmGrab” is stellar site and I sincerely wish you all of the “ongoing” success that you deserve. I am a film “freak” and now that I know that you’re here, I plan to visit often to “grab more film.” Now that I am aware of the availability of such wonderful stills, I plan to write many more film reviews and critiques for personal publication on my blog. It’s apparent that you have been working in the film industry. You “call all the right shots.”

    • Well, now that you mention it, I would love to have some shots from “Magnolia.” It’s one of my favorite films of all time. Almost every scene in the film has an awesome “shot” right in it. Anything you could put together on that would be exciting for me to work with. Thanks for taking my request.

      • Okay, you are my hero! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened my mail and saw that “Magnolia” stills were already there. I opened it immediately and those shots are everything that I “knew” they would be but they truly are, so much more. Having watched the film at least, ten times, I had some “stills” in my head already. In addition to Tom Cruise on “stage” which I knew there had to be images of, The car scene with Julianne Moore, the car scene in the rain with Tom Cruise, the kid sitting in misery at the table, and the bar scene with William H. Macy and Henry Gibson were already in my head, there were others, but those were the ones that I “saw.” Imagine my delight when,the shots I “called” were a part of this excellent assortment. I was thrilled.

        I have been impressed with your site from the beginning, but, what took me over the top and into the “super impressed” zone was when I saw the stills of Cruise with Robards in the death bed scene. I typically can take or leave Tom Cruise, but his performance in that scene..and the one, earlier, with the reporter absolutely blew me away. I think that the Cruise and Robards scene contained some of the most brilliant acting that I have ever seen. So, I just want to say that I can’t thank you enough. My birthday is on Monday and I feel like this is an early present. I thrive on fine film and Magnolia is in my top five and always will be.

        I also want to tell you that I have linked your site in my blog in three different categories, and, for what it’s worth, I noted the exceptional quality of the stills that you have as well as how awesome FilmGrabber is in the “big picture.” I know, that was an awful pun…just shoot me. I didn’t use those terms of that you can be sure. Thank you again, a million times over. I am anxious to set about finding a way to display them that will do them justice.

        YOU ROCK!!!!

        With Regards,
