New Releases: The Eyes of Orson Welles


Granted exclusive access to hundreds of drawings and paintings by legendary filmmaker Orson Welles (1915–1985), Mark Cousins (The Story of Film: An Odyssey) narrates this documentary as a series of letters to Welles inspired by the astonishing discovery. A visual autobiography of Welles’s life and travels—sketched with Welles’s own hand, painted with his own brush—the film is a vital contribution to the still-evolving understanding of the breadth of Welles’s genius.

“Whimsical but heartfelt love letter to Orson Welles connects the director’s films to his paintings and drawings” —The Guardian

★★★★ “Intriguing” —The Independent

★★★★ “Facinating” —Financial Times

★★★★ “Impressive and arresting” —Empire

“Intriguing and illuminating” —The Hollywood Reporter
