Because I still think that the film, as a whole, is less great than single scenes.
It feels like Welles, in his constant and genius re-thinking of cinema and genres, ended up to focus too much on creating stunning scenes and stressing on the noir moods than to keep up the rhythm of the film, which should also come from script, characters and an organic continuum of scenes and moments, where the story unfolds because of characters' motifs instead of his creator's pleasure of manipulating things and people, just to shock and surprise the audience. Basically, it is a fantastic post-modern film, made ages before postmodernism (like Tarantino), resulting to be too cold and "planned". Still I find it enourmously entertaining and, if it is even for the opening sequence, and the bitter closing line, it should be bought with no second thoughts.
Remastering is spectacular and extras are great.
The first attempt to reconstruct the director's cut was made in Italy in the late eighties by the authors of a late night public tv show, who got hold of the negative and screened that version on tv.
