    I promised to raise this question a few weeks back, when everyone (including us) was linking to LOVEFILM's list of movies people lie about seeing. I assume there are more people who lie about liking movies than do about seeing them. And what better week to think about this than the 70th anniversary of "Citizen Kane"?

The film has a bit of an interesting history. Lat year Nick Cassavetes (”The Notebook”) was circling the project—then known as “Peaceable Kingdom” or “Elephant Orphanage”—but he bailed acrimoniously in what resulted in an ugly lawsuit. Slightly more tantalizingly, Walter Salles (”The Motorcycle Diaries”) became attached to the project later on and Julia Roberts was rumored to have been ...
