Critic Reviews for It's All True
It would never have been one of [Welles'] major works, but the swiftness and urgency with which the tale is told, and the potent composition of even the most simple scenes, reveal the touch of the master.
Welles had intended to narrate the section himself, but the writers and directors of this documentary have wisely opted not to second-guess Welles, simply presenting the material as it stands and adding music and sound effects.
What little there was (some Rio carnival footage, scenes from the fishing story Four Men on a Raft) looked stunning. In this documentary, happily, there's much more to show.
This documentary is a long, seductive footnote to a cinema legend.
The late Welles obviously had nothing to do with this new project. But you can feel his ambitious, quixotic intentions lurking in there somewhere.
Audience Reviews for It's All True
Interesting look at a little known Orson Welles project involving the capturing of footage of life in South America. Probably works a little better if they just released the footage and scrapped the documentary portion.
