Bumping this garbage thread to rehabilitate it.

I'm on an Orson Welles kick after seeing his newly released film, which was a nice surprise. It was better than I expected it to be.


I also watched this great documentary The One-Man Band that explores all of Orson's unfinished personal projects. There are a lot of these unfinished projects -- Merchant of Venice, Don Quixote, The Deep, The Dreamers, and The Other Side of the Wind until recently. Unfortunately due to bad circumstances and perhaps a tragic character flaw Orson Welles always had trouble getting his films across the finish line.

Anyway, the reason he made these ridiculous commercials in his later years was to fund his independent filmmaking. Despite all his setbacks he never stopped filming.

It's a sad story in some ways, as you see his vision unrealized again and again. But it's still very interesting to see how his talent and creative drive were firmly at the forefront of his daily life.

I noticed a lot of new Orson Welles documentaries came out in 2018, likely to coincide with The Other Side of the Wind.

Ryan Suffern - A Final Cut for Orson

Mark Cousins - The Eyes of Orson Welles

Morgan Neville - They'll Love Me When I'm Dead

Here's nice video where Morgan Neville discusses his affection for F for Fake. I never knew the backstory on F for Fake... a lot of the footage was shot by someone else!

The trial, its funny, the only movie of his i founded to be fascinating is actually an adaptation of a Kafka novel.And not even a good one at that
