Prologue to a Project
Orson Welles is considered one of the greatest if not the greatest film directors of all time. Cynics such as Woody Allen seem to think he's the only talented director America has produced. I selected Orson Welles due to the fact of his experienced and before-his-time filmaking techniques. Modern films is what it is, because of Orson Welles. That's why I have chosen to watch and review each of his films.
Orson Welles is considered the greatest director of all time by some. My quest is to find out whether that is fact, or fiction.
My first step is to lay a couple ground rules:
1. Only watch and review movies that Orson Welles Directed, not Starred.
2. Only watch and review movies that Orson Welles was credited as directing.
3. Only watch and review his full length feature films.
