Although I'm not sure how much I want to give it a 10, I think it's a great documentary. It contains wonderful interviews with Welles, "The Other" writer Harold Pinter, and the great Richard Strauss, as well as Welles's great friend Henry Ford and his friends. Most of the material is taken from Welles's own oral history interviews, as well as interviews with Welles and Ford. The content is generally interesting and well-documented, and the fact that Welles went through a lot of painful mental illness during this period is fascinating. The fact that the material was almost entirely forgotten for decades and is now coming to light makes this film even more interesting. The images that the film highlights are some of the most moving and powerful images that I have ever seen in a documentary. There's not a single boring moment, and the research and interviews are very thorough. The cast of well-known guests are very good, and even Richard Strauss who played Welles's alter-ego in the movie, gives a very good interview. I'd recommend this documentary to anyone who likes documentaries, or just someone who is interested in Welles's life and works.

I loved it. If you're a fan of Orson Welles, this is a must. The film is a fascinating look into Welles' obsession with an actor that he fell in love with. He saw him as an all star, and believed him to be capable of such acting. However, it wasn't so. The story is fascinating and the film is fascinating. This is a must watch.

I don't usually like documentaries but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I was only able to view it a few days ago and I want to know more about the history of this film. I'm glad I didn't pay to see it. The acting was top notch and there was never a dull moment. The main subject of the film was Orson Welles' relationship with the artist Paul Mazursky and the relationship between Welles and Sidney. This was a great love story. I loved the documentary itself and it didn't detract from my viewing experience. I really recommend this documentary to everyone. The focus was on the people who made the film and not on the personalities. I would also recommend seeing the documentary before you see the film. It gives you a better understanding of the film.

I have to agree with another reviewer. If you haven't seen this film, DO NOT MISS IT! The film is fascinating and worth seeing again. The story follows Orson Welles in the 1930s. Orson is a brilliant writer and a genius at manipulating his audiences. Orson wanted to produce a film that would be in the same category as Citizen Kane and what he got was the film version of Citizen Kane. Orson had an idea that he wanted to use for a film. He wanted to use the words of Shakespeare. He was going to use the words of one of the most influential writers of all time. His plan went wrong and he ended up producing this film, the film version of Citizen Kane. What he failed to realize is that it was too successful. People loved this film and this film is still considered a classic in the movies today. The film is well made. The acting is good. The director, Marlon Brando, is a legend in his own right. I think that Orson Welles and Marlon Brando are the two greatest directors of all time. If you haven't seen this film, do it, and then watch it again and again and again. It is worth every minute of it.

While there is not much in the way of history, the BBC series "The Eyes of Orson Welles" did a pretty good job in piecing together his life story and how he used his medium of film to tell his story. The television show is not a lot different and does a pretty good job, except that you can skip some of the more riveting parts. You can't. But the TV series is entertaining and informative and well worth watching. The TV series is a great way to get a general sense of the man and his works. The movie does a good job of showing how Orson Welles made his films, but it has some flaws. One of the main problems is that the movie does not show all of his films that well. We get a few brief glimpses of each film and they are not very informative. Also, the music from his films is not very good and not very memorable. In addition, I found the end of the movie disappointing. I found it to be a little to long for what was supposed to be a 90-minute movie. I give the movie a 10/10.

This is an excellent documentary about the life of Orson Welles. You will hear from many of the people involved in the making of the movie, and this will give you an idea of the high level of talent involved. In the documentary you will hear from Orson Welles, the original actors, the producers, and you'll hear from many of the people who worked with him. This is a must see!

I went to this movie not knowing what to expect. I have a few friends who were going, and it was just a one-time ticket, so I thought it would be a fun way to kill a few hours. It was not. While I did learn a bit about the movie and the process of creating a movie, the movie itself was not particularly well done. I didn't have any issues with the pacing, but it didn't flow well at all. The first half of the movie seemed like it was going to drag on forever, and I really didn't care about any of the characters, not even the one guy in the movie, even though I loved his character. I don't want to give away anything so I won't say much about it. I can only say that I am glad I did not pay to see this in theaters, because I would have had a bad experience. So go see it if you like sci-fi and/or have friends who are going, but if you're expecting a great movie, I'd say pass.

I am a film lover. I love to be entertained and always looking for a new view on a movie. And that is what I find in this movie. It is a documentary about the life of the great director Orson Welles and his life and career. It is the story of Welles' life and career. It is a well documented life and career. I am glad that the movie has been made. I know it will be very difficult to show the movie and its content, because many people don't understand it. So I suggest that you watch it and you will see. I am sure you will appreciate it. I hope that you will feel free to share your thoughts about the movie with me. I am very interested in your comments. I hope you will love the movie and I hope that you will enjoy it.
