This starts off veryyy slowly. Welles' narration in a strong irish accent kicks in as soon as the credits drop and is at first pretty painful. Luckily, it doesn't take long to accept it. The last half hour of the movie is great, as are bits of the first hour. Stick with it, I almost gave up on it, as it does pay off at the end. A weak 4 out of 5 stars, but definitely worth a look. I bought mine cheap and used so I'm not complaining. The camera-work, especially at the end, makes the movie. Even though the story is pretty typical Hollywood fare, Welles' direction is anything but.

Format: DVD
Orson Welles is remembered more for Citizen Kane than this film , but I don't know why. This movie isn't just film noir , it is
black cinema. Screenplay by Welles , directed by Welles , and featuring Welles . He has control of everything , and as you watch it
you realize that every scene , every camera angle , is for a reason. The film revolts the viewer as it unfolds , it is sort of like a train wreck ; a terrible thing , but you can't help but watch. The characters are repugnant , obviously on purpose. The camera shots ,
particularly on faces , are too tight , too close , and this too , is in my opinion , designed to revolt the viewer. The characters
all seem to hate each other , and if it weren't for the fact that they are trapped together on a yacht , or by marriage , or by
bussiness associations , you would expect them to flee each other. To further irritate the viewer ( me at least ) Welles assumes a phony Irish brogue accent that seems out of place , and not necessary to the story. The convoluted plot involves murder , but who is doing what to whom is a multilevel mystery. Without describing it , the finale is nothing less than superb.
So far my description may not motivate you to want to see it , but it is so well done in its' weird direction , that it is a must see.
Welles had control of Citizen Kane too , but this is seven years later , and he is more accomplished at his craft , and it is fascinating
in its' offbeat way. Forget Mars , forget Kane , see this. In Glorious Black & White.

Format: DVD
Columbia Pictures was a strange concoction. In many ways the most american of all studios with its two reelers and B movies and also its cover girl star Rita Hayworth. The big star on the lot and a personal favourite of the movie mogul, a studio which he built and he assembled a large production team which built very marketable products over time..especially in Rita and they did not have many large stars on the lot. They had the Three stooges, and they used their large stars to sell so many of their marketing products, this was largely the business smarts of its head Harry Cohn, thats how he built his studio, and the down to earth common values of so much of these two reelers. Rits needed good profitable films and they were always on the search for material so when Orson called about a minor film the studio decided to go all aout and make a big expensive production for his star Rita..his wife and on the verge of divorce it was the couple's last chance to put their marriage back together largely at Rita's insistence. Welles agreed and the film. The film came out at 2 and a half hours. All we have is the 85 minute version, delayed two years for release and the couple split after the marriage. Welles one success in america THe STranger had just come out so they were hopeful with this basically tells a complex tale about a cruise in the Panama and caribbean and then an assortment of minor characters, and here as Bogdonavich the analyst of the film notes they are put together with Dickensian skills. There are various murderous and low lifes and they act in a way which you will not see in films..they murder but in a frenzied way which seems rather unique like something we have never seen before..the charm of this film.Read more ›

Format: Blu-ray
THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI [1948] [Blu-ray] [US Import] A 4K Digital Restoration in High-Definition Video and Audio!

Baffling murders, fascinating plot twists and remarkable camera work all contribute to this spellbinding, time-honoured “film noir” written, directed by and starring Orson Welles. Hired to work on a yacht belonging to the disabled husband of femme fatale Rita Hayworth, Welles plays an innocent man drawn into a dangerous web of intrigue and murder.

The subject of great controversy and scandal upon its initial release, ‘The Lady from Shanghai’ shocked 1948 audiences by presenting Rita Hayworth with her flaming red hair cut short and dyed champagne blonde. Fifty years later, ‘The Lady from Shanghai’ is considered vintage Orson Welles, his famous hall of mirrors climax hailed as one of the greatest scenes in cinematic history. Based on the novel “If I Die Before I Wake.”

FILM FACT: Other scenes were filmed in Acapulco. The yacht Zaca, on which many scenes take place, was owned by actor Errol Flynn, who skippered the yacht in between takes and can also be seen in the background in one scene at a cantina in Acapulco.
