Fade to Black Reviews

A terrific idea is unfortunately wasted. The great cast is wasted too.

Like Black Magic itself, alas, this is destined to be a forgotten curio of limited appeal.

All credit to writer-director Oliver Parker for trying to broaden his CV, but Danny Huston is a terrible bore as Welles, Paz Vega continues to be incomprehensible in English, and the murky mystery plot limps along unrewardingly.

A retro pastiche that, like The Good German before it, will be of limited interest to all but the most ardent film buff.

On paper this must have looked a neat idea: a wildly fictionalised account of a skid-row Orson Welles, up to his neck in political skulduggery while shooting a third-rate picture in post-war Italy.

Fade to Black is as sleek and attractive as the chrome polished vintage cars Huston travels in, but never truly gets in gear.

For all its flaws, it's a movie-lover's movie, and clear evidence that Parker should push himself a bit more often.
