while i had low hopes for this thread (expecting a lot of negativity and gasbaggery, and not disappointed) people justifying the movies that they like has redeemed it.

I believe the reason cinema buffs continue to rate "Citizen Kane" so highly is that Wells used a whole host of techniques that had never been seen before.
