Anything Goes : Rosebud by Antonia Patsidou

Antonia Patsidou


73 YEARS AFTER AND THE FILM CITIZEN KANE, IS TIMELY AS EVER. By Antonia Patsidou Fame and money are a deadly duo. If you add to this the political and media power the things get even worse. A few days ago came back to my mind as flashback the film Citizen Kane. The occasion was the statements by a candidate for mayor in an area of Greece. The candidate comes from the art world and said word for word: “And I thought the artistic circuit was dirty”! Having experience in political reportage immediately understood what he meant. Look for the best scriptwriter or director of Hollywood. The conspiracy that you will find in political backstage, you will not meet anywhere. Although ultimately I have come to the following conclusion: that finally they are bad “writers” and “directors”, because it seems that there is conspiracy, that behind the scenes the whole story is set up! “Rosebud”! - – If all those ambitious mandarins politicians and the tycoons newspaper publishers, could understand what lies behind the word “Rosebud”, then perhaps could understand, the phrase “Vanity of vanities! All is vanity.”
