3,0 su 5 stelleBarbie-doll sized font makes a wonderful book unreadable.
DaR. Harrisil 21 gennaio 2017 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
A wonderful book on Welles! My only complaint is that the print is much too small! You almost need a magnifying glass to read it. There's great stuff here, but the publisher should have put a crowbar in their wallet for more pages so it could be published in a larger font. Reading while holding a magnifying glass kills much of the enjoyment of the experience.

Valuable mainly to show Welles reasoning behind his films, I was especially interested in his remarks on Touch of Evil; his comments on cutting, camera angles, etc are pertinent and thoughtful. His claim it was an anti-Fascist film is consonant with his ex post facto comments on much that he did and not justified by the material. He claims the studio cut out his black comic bits in Touch of Evil because they were too powerful for the middlebrows who ran the studio. On the contrary, maybe they were distracting from an already sloppy script full of inane dialogue. As we can not see the lost material, maybe Welles did give a coherent reason for the deputy villain's decision to wear a recording device to convict the evil villain. But that would have been hard to do convincingly so deep into the story. I got the feeling Welles said to himself, how the heck can I end this film?

The content is splendid, wonderful insight into the great Welles. However, as others have stated, the blurry photographs appear to have been printed on gauze, and the small physical size of the book is unwieldy...a thick book in a pocketbook format. Had I known this I would have never purchased.

There is no better way to get a sense of who Orson Welles was and what his take on the various happenings of his career was, than via this set of recordings. Yes, the quality is not always great -- but you get to hear Orson telling the driver where to turn, as he and Peter chat in the back seat, or Orson asking the waiter a question, in the middle of their conversation. Of course, that also means you get some road noise in the background, or the sounds of various restuarants.
The major drawback is that for those that are unfamiliar with Orson's films, the conversation may be a little hard to follow at times. And, more importantly, there were MANY more hours of recordings made and used for the printed version of these interviews.... and all we get are a few hours of the prime material.
Come on, Peter: Release the whole shebang. Of, if that can't be done because of the economics of it, do the scholarly community a favor and place it online to that people can listen to it over the internet! (I'll help!)
