Yeah, MWG, guess 70 years ago, ALL movies were slow-paced. The ADHD pacing that you know today is the result of the MTV generation and the "4 seconds on a single shot is too long" mentality. Sorry dude, but slow or not, it's a great movie and deserves a better score than what you gave it.
As for "Social Network" (good movie though it was), just because it features an anti-social millionaire, that doesn't make it as good as "Citizen Kane"!

As for Citizen Kane, well, to be honest, I didn't like it. I thought it was far too slowly paced (even Welles had to insert that random screeching parrot in order to wake people up!) and the story really didn't interest me. One thing I did like was the ending. The first time I saw it, I felt sad. However, I much prefer The Social Network, which to me is like a modern Citizen Kane. 5/10
