On the centenary of his birth, this remarkable documentary looks at the genius of Orson Welles—enigmatic titan of stage, radio and film. Welles’s life was magical: a musical prodigy at 10, a director of Shakespeare at 14, a painter at 16, a star of stage and radio at 20, creator of Citizen Kane at 25; lover of some of the world’s most beautiful women, including Rita Hayworth. In the years following Citizen Kane, Welles made many more films (The Magnificent Ambersons, The Lady From Shanghai, Chimes at Midnight, F for Fake), but encountered many setbacks, sometimes having to stop a production to take on an acting job (as in The Third Man) to finance his own work. A wealth of fascinating material, some rare and unseen, is masterfully orchestrated by Oscar-winning director Chuck Workman (“Precious Images”). Features highly entertaining, self-analytical interviews with Welles spanning 50 years, with comments from Jeanne Moreau, Sir Peter Brook, Costa-Gavras, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Richard Linklater, Frank Marshall, Paul Mazursky, Wolfgang Puck, Norman Lloyd, renowned editor Walter Murch (who re-edited Touch of Evil from Welles’s extensive notes 40 years after Welles was fired) and his close personal friend Peter Bogdanovich.
