The restoration team that resurrected this film deserve more than our thanks. They have given us back a film by a master, working with all his considerable, improvisational wit and style. Orson Welles is, by far, the 20th Century's best filmmaker. In company with "Touch of Evil," "Citizen Kane" and "F for Fake," his masterful adaption of Shakespeare's "Othello" is one of his best films. The thousands of hours of devoted work done by the filmmakers who helped restore this masterpiece (enhancing sound effects, painstakingly matching what had been a criminally out-of-sync soundtrack to the players' mouths, digitally sharpening the film's every frame) is shown to great effect in this DVD. For anyone interested in modern film, Welles' new "Othello" is an essential addition to a DVD film "library."
