I really enjoyed this doc
I was moved to review this because the one review on this page completely tore it apart. The way the reviewer wrote made me think that this person had an intense personal dislike of Chuck Workman, for some reason.
So, I thought I'd look at this reviewers other reviews. And guess what? Almost all porn.
So, let's just stick to the subject at hand: Orson Welles.
I first became aware of Welles when I was taking a film class in college. "Citizen Kane" amazed me, not surprisingly.
Welles says, in "Magician," that Gregg Toland, the great cinematographer, came to Welles and said that he (Toland) wanted very much to work with Welles on "Kane." Welles said, "Why? I've never directed a film before." And Toland said, "That's why."
It was uncharted. Anything was possible. And, indeed, it was.
I would encourage any Welles fan to see this. It was well worth it.
