MAGICIAN: THE ASTONISHING LIFE AND WORK OF ORSON WELLES (BIO/2014)
Cinematic icon Orson Welles' remarkable talent and checkered career are memorialized in this comprehensive documentary on the eve of his centenary - featuring clips from nearly all of his directorial efforts and interviews with filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese and George Lucas.
The remarkable genius of Orson Welles, the enigma of his career as a Hollywood star, a Hollywood director (for some a Hollywood failure), and a crucially important independent filmmaker. Orson Welles's life was magical: a musical prodigy at age 10, a director of Shakespeare at 14, a painter at 16, a star of stage and radio at 20, romances with some of the most beautiful women in the world, including Rita Hayworth. His work was similarly extraordinary, most notably Citizen Kane, (considered by many to be the most important movie ever made), created by Welles when he was only 25.
