Aroview: Orson Welles ground-breaking work chronicles a publishing tycoon's rise to power, told through a reporter's efforts to discover the meaning of his last words.
The innovative use of camera angles, focus and plot structure literally changed the rulebook of film-making. The result is rewarding as both entertainment and as craft, improving with each renewed acquaintance.
5 stars (Exceptional) Worthy of the acclaim. Tells a story that rarely gets told and the themes of propaganda are offset well by a genuinely human story of a flawed individual. Follows the great philosophy that you don't need to sympathise with a character, only empathise.r~Sevenhead
