A good movie

Since I'm a huge fan of Orson Welles, I try to watch all his flicks whenever I get the chance. Obviously, this one is not as good as his masterpieces such as 'Citizen Kane' but it is still a damn fine picture. First of all, the directing is awesome, there is also a great mood. Rita Hayworth is pretty good and steals the show throughout the whole movie. In my opinion, the main weakness is with the ... read more

"1.12.2013 Orson Welles puhuu hyvin hauskalla irkkuaksentilla. Hienoa veli Wellesiä. Parempi kuin Citizen Kane muttei kuitenkaan niin awesome kuin Touch of Evil. Elokuva paranee mitä pidemmälle mennään ja etenkin lopussa tuleva peilikohtaus on todella upea."

"One of the greatest visual effects in cinematic history is the famous, visually intriguing Crazy House/Hall of Mirrors scene at the climax of Orson Welles' film noir classic. The setting for the sequence is the deserted funhouse/amusement park closed for the season, where itinerant Irish adventurer/sailor Michael O'Hara (Orson Welles) awakens, trips a mechanism in the "Crazy House" ("for a while there, I thought it was me that was crazy") and careens down a long, serpentine zigzag slide past a "

"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. "
