Movie Info

This fascinating documentary is almost completely comprised of scenes from Welles' uncompleted films, most of which have never been seen by the public. Though directed by German filmmaker Vassili Silovic, the clips and information were largely provided by Welles' closest associate and long-time companion Oja Kodar. It is she who appears in the first scene as she talks about the great director while driving to the warehouse where many of these unviewed treasures were stored. Film clips included are from The Other Side of the Wind (1970-76), The Deep (1967-69), The Merchant of Venice, The Dreamers, (1980) and even his version of Moby Dick. Also included is the trailer for F for Fake, and several scenes from television films from the '60s. Finally, the film offers rare glimpses of Welles on television performing magic tricks, appearing on a proposed talk show, and appearing on the Muppets. Towards the end, Kodar also shows off some of Welles' drawings and etchings.
