Mr. Arkadin Reviews

March 18, 2020
Beneath the baroque extravagance of its style, and the characteristic romantic retreat from reality into another Xanadu, the film crumbles emptily away.

Self-indulgent camp by a master of visual effects who lavishes them on a dime-novel story fabricated by himself; great comedown from Citizen Kane.

Engaging meller it may be, but missing the incisive delineation that marked Kane.

Arkadin is a rotter from the start; we couldn't care less about his life or death.

the film suffers not from Welles' absence but rather from any reason for us to care about Arkadin
