Movie Info

Granted exclusive access to hundreds of private drawings and paintings by Orson Welles, filmmaker Mark Cousins dives deep into the visual world of this legendary director and actor, to reveal a portrait of the artist as he's never been seen before - through his own eyes, sketched with his own hand, painted with his own brush. Executive produced by Michael Moore, The Eyes of Orson Welles brings vividly to life the passions, politics and power of this brilliant 20th-century showman, and explores how the genius of Welles still resonates today in the age of Trump, more than 30 years after his death.

Cousins makes a lively argument for the creative dynamo's abundant hand-drawn work as an integral part of his creative process, even if Welles never advertised himself publicly as a brushes-and-canvas man.

Those who do engage with Cousins's long vowels will ... find much to savour in his raptures.

The Eyes of Orson Welles is terrific, a rich, intelligent, adoring embrace of its subject.

Cousins turns his interpretive gifts and mellifluous delivery to the legend of Orson Welles, and achieves the impossible - he makes it new.
