  1. F&A's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    I was fortunate enough to watch this movie with Mark Cousins present in the cinema who even phoned Welles' daughter and put her on the speaker whilst discussing with and answering questions from the audience. An interesting way of presenting the man behind the film maker. The film is about Cousins' idea of Welles as much as Welles' work itself.

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    Rather ingenious reconstruction of the Wellesian personality and its fragmentation into characters, film style, ideas and places. Like a good metaphysician, Cousins reads the whole in the fragment and not only enlightens with the lesser known talents of Welles, he also mesmerizes with a calm voice-over that dares to confront but also in reverence to bow to the genius of the man. Hard to imagine a more relevant ode.

  3. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    Oh god this was amateurish. Mark Cousins, now forced to create imagery of his own, has created a visually inert film about one of the great innovators of cinema. It plays less like a movie and more like a power point presentation, which is especially disappointing considering how interesting this material is...

  4. diiiiogorocha's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    Não conheço muito bem o trabalho do Orson Welles mas ainda assim fui ver este documentário e achei uma abordagem interessante, e definitivamente deixou-me curioso pra ver mais filmes dele. Não gostei muito da parte final com o "Orson Welles", mas de resto está bastante interessante.

  5. josé neves's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    Cinema. The master degree on Welles is long, loud and narcissistic (the voice over, over and over, preaching, being smart!), and noisy. It doesn't suit the figure, who was all that in extraordinary (many) ways, because it's as an audiovisual object of a primary and ugliness stature (the editing!, the sound!, the music!, the images that always illustrate the audible!), well below that qualifying.

  6. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

  7. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    Magisterial biographical essay showing us how to look anew to an oeuvre that, as talked about as it is, remains criminally underseen and hiding in plain sight; the best possible defense of Welles' centrality in modern film.

  8. Aardsy's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    If you've never heard a guy yammer on before...

  12. lostlevel's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    A must see for Welles fans although there is one part I'm not sure about this was an enjoyable and informative essay.

  13. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Eyes of Orson Welles

    Gained new appreciation for Wellesian art history references: Othello - Magritte's 'The Lovers', Mantegna's 'In Mantua'; Chimes At Midnight - Goya's 'A Pilgrimage in San Isidro', Tintoretto's 'Christ Carried A Tomb'; Citizen Kane - Piranesi's 'Carceri VII', De Chirico's 'Mystery and Melancholy'. Mark Cousins should curate a museum on Welles; his depth of insight will trigger swoons.
