Aro Recommended Othello


Italy 1952, 89 minutes
Dir. Orson Welles
Rating: [G]
Genres: Classics, Drama / Shakespeare


Aroview: Dir. Welles filmed Shakespeare's great tragedy over four years in Europe and North Africa, and despite some patchy moments, turned in probably the most cinematic version yet.

Welles plays the Moorish general of Venice who is deceived by his lieutenant into murdering his wife, but his greatest role here is behind the camera, producing a visually striking near-masterpiece.
