Our take

You may have heard of this one: from 1962 to 2002, Orson Welles’s mammoth debut topped the Sight & Sound critics’ poll as the greatest film ever made. Still in bronze position, this triumph of American cinema endures as an epic interrogation of delusion and greed, mass media and political power.
