The Magic World of Orson Welles
Publisher: University of Illinois Press
Prodigy. Iconoclast. Genius. Exile. Orson Welles remains one of the most discussed figures in cinematic history. James Naremore presents a revised third edition of his incomparable study, including a new section on the unfinished film The Other Side of the Wind . Naremore analyzes the political and psychological implications of the films, Welles's idiosyncratic style, and the biographical details--both playful and vexing--that impacted the works. Itself a historic film study, The Magic World of Orson Welles unlocks the soaring art and quixotic methods of a master.
