I've been a fan of Orson Welles since the day I saw his original "Citizen Kane". I first saw his "TODAY" documentary on PBS and have been following his career ever since. I was excited to see this new documentary on Welles. I was pleasantly surprised. I don't know if I would call it a documentary. It's more of an insight into Welles' life. I guess I could call it a biography. The first thing that struck me was the lack of tension or tension-inducing dialogue. This documentary has a lot of Welles' most famous lines, but there's not a lot of them. I don't think I've ever seen Welles talk to anyone about the film. He never discusses it, and he never talks about it. It's a bit of a shame, because he's such a great filmmaker. He could've given this doc some more tension. But, I guess it's hard to do a documentary on a man who's given so many interviews. So, it's a pretty good documentary. I also liked the fact that it looked at some of the things Welles did that weren't part of his normal schedule, such as writing his plays. But I don't think it's really necessary. He was in his element. It's a bit of a shame that the documentary doesn't discuss well how his life changed after he was nominated for an Oscar. It's almost like he just disappeared off the face of the earth. But, you can't blame him. It's not like he was a star. His best film is "TODAY". I think his career really ended with that film. I'm surprised that the doc didn't mention his Nobel Prize. That was a real achievement. I'm glad the documentary is a little more balanced than most documentaries. I don't think it's balanced enough.

The movie of the director that gave us 'Lincoln', 'The Life and Times of General Patton' and 'Eisenhower' is 'The Eyes of Orson Welles' (2003). It's an interesting film that is very well done. For the most part, I think the director was able to present all of Welles' work in a way that people can understand it. However, there were a few areas where I felt the director could have done a better job. First off, the editing was too choppy. There were a few scenes where the director used quick cuts that didn't make sense and made the film seem more like a documentary than a movie. Second, I thought that the director used a lot of the images that Welles used in his films, but used them in ways that didn't really fit. For example, when Welles would use a painting as a mask to make an image of what's happening on the screen, he would often use the painting as a canvas. However, at other times, he would use it as a paintbrush. These are the kind of things that I feel he could have done better. I also thought that there was some really bad acting in the film. While I think that the actors did a good job, I felt that there were a few scenes that made me feel that they were just playing for laughs. For example, when they were talking about the Holocaust in the classroom and they were supposed to be serious, but they were just laughing at each other. It made me feel like I was watching a comedy and not a drama. The only scene that I thought that was great was the scene where Welles was talking to his sister about the Nazi atrocities and he was saying, "I don't care about the Jews, I care about the Germans." That scene was great and made me feel like I was really watching Welles and not just a fictional character. Overall, I really liked the film and think that it was a great look at Welles' life and his work. However, I feel that the editing could have been a little better. However, I still think that it was a great film and I think that the director did a great job.
