Orson Welles S Citizen Kane from the Author: James Naremore. Citizen Kane is arguably the most admired and significant film since the advent of talking pictures. No other film is quite so interesting from both artistic and political points of view. To study it even briefly is to learn a great deal about American history, motion-picture style, and the literary aspects of motion-picture scripts. Rather than a sterile display of critical methodologies, James Naremore has gathered a set of essays that represent the essential writings on the film. It gives the reader a lively set of critical interpretations, together with the necessary production information, historical background, and technical understanding to comprehend the film's larger cultural significance. Selections range from the anecdotal --Peter Bogdanovich's interview with Orson Welles--to the critical, with discussions on the scripts and sound track, and a discussion of what accounts for the film's enduring popularity. Contributors include James Naremore, Peter Bogdanovich, Jonathan Rosenbaum, Robert L. Carringer, Francois Thomas, Michael Denning, Laura Mulvey, Peter Wollen, and Paul Arthur. "

Filmklassiker Citizen Kane Von Orson Welles from the Author: Bastian Buchtaleck. Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 2+, Universität Hildesheim (Stiftung) (Institut für audiovisuelle Medien), Veranstaltung: Einführung in die Filmanalyse, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Fabel aus dem Film Mr. Arkadin beschreibt Orson Welles seinen eigenen Charakter. Obwohl der Film Mr. Arkadin später gedreht wurde, kann man die Fabel dennoch auch auf Citizen Kane anwenden, da Welles Figuren immer etwas von ihm hatten. Die Figuren hatten immer etwas von dem Skorpion, denn auch sie blieben immer ihrem Charakter treu, auch wenn dies für sie nachteilig war. So z.B. wenn Kane in Susan Alexanders Appartement bleibt, anstatt mit seiner Frau nach Hause zu gehen. Sein Charakter zwingt ihn zu bleiben, auch wenn dies Probleme mit sich bringt. An dieser Stelle sagt Charles Foster Kane auch, dass nur er für sich entscheidet und niemand ihm eine Entscheidung abnehmen kann. Orson Welles wurde am 6.Mai 1915 in Kenosha/Wisconsin geboren. 1931 begann er seine Karriere im fernen Dublin, wo er am Theater erst spielen und mit 16 Jahren schließlich auch inszenieren durfte. Mit 19 Jahren hatte er sein Bühnendebüt in Amerika. 1937 scharrte Welles seine eigene Theatertruppe um sich. In den späteren dreißiger Jahren war Welles mit seiner Truppe „The Mercury Theater“ kommerziell zwar nicht erfolgreich, sorgte aber immer wieder für Aufsehen. Ein unvorhergesehener Skandalerfolg – das Marsmenschenhörspiel „War of the worlds“ brachte Welles 1939 einen Hollywoodproduktionsvertrag über drei Filme ein.

"...[A] beautifully researched, valuable study of one of America's most influential and mysterious artists. ...[What] makes this book remarkable is Welle's own contribution. His comments, opinions, interviews cut in and out of the narrative with an almost cinematic force." -Patricia Bosworth

Touch Of Evil from the Author: Terry Comito. "Considered by many critics to be one of Welles's great works, the film gets a superb review in this first-rate anthology. . . . Recommended." --Film Study "This is a welcome addition to the growing collection of scripts of film classics, one to put on the shelf next to Welles's Citizen Kane. . . . Recommended." --Choice Welles is by consensus one of the most talented film directors who ever worked in Hollywood, and this flamboyant film--a 1958 exploration of the thriller form--is one of his greatest achievements. Comito's introduction considers the film's relation to the tradition of film noir and demonstrates how Welles's mastery of cinematic language transforms the materials of a routine thriller into a work that is at once a sardonic examination of the dark side of sexuality, and elegiac rumination on the loss of innocence, and a disquieting assault on the viewer's own moral and aesthetic certainties. Other contextual materials in the book include a biographical sketch of Welles; an important interview with Welles by Andre Bazin, Charles Bitsch, and Jean Domarchi, available here for the first time in English; an interview with Charlton Heston on the making of the film; representative reviews; critical essays by William Johnson, Jean Collet (translated especially for this book), and Stephen Heath; an analysis of the relation of the complete film to Welles's recently discovered shooting script; and a filmography and bibliography. The continuity script collates the two available versions of Touch of Evil and provides an invaluable, shot-by-shot guide through the visual and audio complexities of Welles's masterpiece.
