I've read this review before and it's a fairly astute one. Surprisingly, Stroheim dislikes the subject matter and script or, rather, feels that the story is too trite and not presented well. One would imagine that the man who bucked Hollywood tradition just as it was forming and thought that a six hour-plus cut was the way to present GREED would be more receptive to the structure of KANE. His criticism of repetitious scenes appears to be based on one of the film's greatest strengths: it's ability to replay events in Kane's life to show subtly different interpretations of its protagonist. However, in mid-review he begins addressing the technical aspect of KANE, as well as the performances, and becomes effusive in his praise. By the end he's calling it a "great picture" that will go down in history! At first, one suspects that Stroheim is simply jealous of this upstart Welles, but the balance of the review makes the entirety feel more even-handed.
