Being a longtime admirer of Welles and his work, I looked forward to seeing this documentary but I found it tedious and boring. Of the many documentaries on Welles, this was the least interesting and Mark Cousins, while clearly in awe of his own brilliance, stretched what could have been an interesting and informative one-hour film about Welles drawings/paintings and film compositions into a two-hour pretentious commentary on Orson's films, politics and romances. If you never heard of Welles or seen one of his films, you may learn something from this opus, otherwise, watch one of the many interviews with the endlessly entertaining and fascinating Orson Welles instead of this attempt to cash in on the renewed interest in the great man, created by the long-awaited release of The Other Side of The Wind.
