What determines whether todays box-office phenomenon gets forgotten or embedded in our collective memory?

To help us recognise some common characteristics of great films, well explore the essential elements of filmmaking: script, direction, editing, acting and cinematography. And to help us appreciate the diverse forms that great films come in, well look in depth at two acknowledged classics Citizen Kane and Casablanca. In the process, well also consider other, more unpredictable and elusive, ingredients such as good storytelling, emotional landscaping and visual magic. Everyone welcome.
