CGiii Comment

A supposed classic.....not in our book.

Welles looks terrible, the script is terrible and the acting is an all-shouting-line-delivery match - who can shout the loudest.

Basically, it's a B-movie and an extension to Welles' decline.

Those who praise it as a masterpiece haven't seen too many masterpieces.

This is a confused shambles with a great opening shot.
