Last week, Sight & Sound released its latest poll on the greatest films of all time. In a surprising upset, Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo unseated Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane as the top film since 1962.
This news caused a stir in the film community, and thanks to a suspicious and sizeable donation from the Charles Foster Kane Memorial Fund, we have put together a drinking game to drown your film snob sorrows in while you watch Citizen Kane. It may not be considered the best any more, but it’s still pretty damned good.
And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and be sure to read a newspaper tomorrow.
Suggested drink: The Citizen Beer from Cismontane Brewing Co.
