Fade to Black Reviews

March 7, 2008
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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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