The Tedious Genius

The only Orson Welles film that I like is Touch of Evil.  I love the Third Man, but Carol Reed directed it.  Citizen Kane – oh, I see its profound merits, but I could take it or leave it to be honest.  Orson Welles doesn't really have my admiration.  I find him mostly sad and his relentless commitment to his own ideas is mind-numbing and leaves me cold.  But this photo is a beauty.  I find Welles the most charismatic when he's frozen in singular moments.
