Unlike everyone else, Citizen Kane wasn't the film I liked best from Orson Welles, I actually think it's a really overrated and boring film, therefore, at the time, I did not care much for Orson Welle's Directing...and acting. But I thought all of this before I came across to watching this film, Macbeth, directed by Orson Welles...and playing Macbeth himself...Oh yes, you guessed it! Orson Welles!... read more

A good movie

Since I’m a huge fan of Orson Welles, I was definitely eager to check this flick. Unfortunately, I had a hard time to get into it because I was really tired and it is the kind of movies which require a lot of focus and concentration. Furthermore, I saw it on the BBC without subtitles so I’m afraid I missed half of those damned convoluted Shakespearian dialogs. Still, there were lots of things ... read more

Film Diary - May 2013 (36 movies items)

" TV (RECORDED TO DVR) / REWATCH Date watched: 20th May, 2013 Project: Classics Why?: Shakespeare... Orson Welles... Macbeth.... Director: Orson Welles Thoughts: Very good. Orson Welles does a fair accent here and there but his deep rich voice often kicks in and takes over. Constantly battling between the two. Watch again?: Yes, probably."

“Since I’m a huge fan of Orson Welles, I was definitely eager to check this flick.

Furthermore, I saw it on the BBC without subtitles so I’m afraid I missed half of those damned convoluted Shakespearian dialogs. Still, there were lots of things to enjoy here. First of all, it must be the gloomiest play ever written by William Shakespeare. Indeed, between the darker than dark version by Orson Welles and the gore fest by Roman Polanski, it is not what you could call a merry affair and compared to this, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ seemed like a picnic. Personally, I didn’t bother me, in the contrary, and I really enjoyed this dark tale, reinf” read more

So, I though I'd give this film and him a chance, after all, I have not seen much from him really.

My first thoughts on this film were really mixed, I have not read the book, nor am I really familiar with Shakespeare's work, whether it's a film, book or a play. But, I honesty thought I was going to be falling asleep through the whole film, well that was not the case. Orson Welles made t” read more

"An Orson Welles film. While it is mostly faithful to the original play, it went through a few chances, among other reasons because of censorship."
