Film David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson are two of the most important film theorists of the past few decades and there are few people who've studied movies in an academic context who either haven't read their work and also can't say that work wasn't the reason why they managed to pass their course. If it hadn't been for either of them I certainly wouldn't have been able to write my MA dissertation due to their lucid, clear and thoughtful explanations of narrative and genre and of all the books which I read during that year, it's their Film Art: An Introduction which I've kept referring back to.

Ebertfest 2012 Q&A: CITIZEN KANE [Commentary by Roger Ebert Intro by David Bordwell]
Which is incredibly poignant from the off, I think you'll agree. The commentary they're referring to appeared on this 2001 release of the film (along with another by Peter Bogdanovich) but is missing from all subsequent releases, replaced with a track by Ken Barnes.
