A good movie

Since I'm a huge fan of Orson Welles, I try to watch all his flicks whenever I get the chance and I was really eager to check this one out. Eventually, this one was not as good as his masterpieces such as 'Citizen Kane' but it was still a damned fine picture. As usual with Welles, there was some major tempering from the studio and, as a matter of fact, Orson Welles only made this movie in the firs... read more

"If not for its distracting plot holes and uneven storyline, The Lady From Shanghai would be perfect. Highlighted with great performances by Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth, this film is truly fascinating and gorgeously filmed. The final ten minutes, however, are truly surreal and amazing; the stuff of cinematic legend. "

" The crime gets your attention and it deserves it. It is planned brilliantly and it shows us the real character of our heroes and heroines. This is, by far, my favorite film from Orson Welles. Rita Hayworth is somewhat one of the most beautiful women on the Earth ever and her presence in this film more than nice. Great performance from her and the other name I would like to bring up is Everett Sloane as Mr. Bannister."

"9.9. Tunnelmaltaan erittäin kieroutunut Welles jaksaa kiinnostaa loppuun asti. En ole ihan varma, mitä Wellesin aksentista pitäisi ajatella ja lopussa tulee ehkä vähän turhan paljon selittelyä kertojanäänellä kunnollisen juonipaljastuksen sijaan. Onneksi vastapainona lopussa nähdään huvipuistossa erittäin komeita kuvallisia kikkailuja."

A good movie

“Since I'm a huge fan of Orson Welles, I try to watch all his flicks whenever I get the chance and I was really eager to check this one out. Eventually, this one was not as good as his masterpieces such as 'Citizen Kane' but it was still a damned fine picture. As usual with Welles, there was some major tempering from the studio and, as a matter of fact, Orson Welles only made this movie in the first place because he really need some quick cash at the time. Still, even though the whole thing was flawed, the directing was quite awesome and there was also a great mood. At the time, it caused some controversy that Orson Welles decided to have Rita Hayworth cut her hair and bleach it but I thought she looked great. On top of that, she gave a solid performance and stole the show every time she wa” read more
