  3. Peter Walsh's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    A solid performance from Welles, as nimble an adaptation as could be hoped from such a generous play.

  4. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    I barely understood anything thanks to the shitty sound of my TV, and yet it still managed to captivate every second. Much like the Bard himself, Welles hasn't aged at all, in fact his films remain incredibly modern to this day. The great icon cannot be contained by dry cinematic philosophies; his foundations were pure frenzy and energy.

  6. Federico Boswarlos's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Le film c'est un de les meilleurs adaptations pour le cinema de Shakespeare, malgre le pauvre qualite de le son :( Welles c'est le parfait Falstaff!

  7. Marvin's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Wow. Easily one of Orson's best films.

  8. FISCHER's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Une des adaptations les plus réussies et les plus subtiles d'Orson Welles, qui compose son œuvre en empruntant les textes de quatre pièces de William Shakespeare, trois tragédies et une comédie dans lesquelles, de près ou de loin, apparaît le personnage de Falstaff et dont il a fait la figure emblématique de son interprétation, imposante et magistrale, avec un talent qui crève l'écran... www.cinefiches.com

  9. LifeofFiction's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Welles tackles a couple of Shakespeare's greatest histories, and the result is one master doing another complete justice. The movie perfectly captures the tension between responsibility and farce, which is the central theme of the plays.

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    This is a true masterpiece from Orson Welles who did more with Shakespeare then anyone else and he is absolutely brilliant as Falstaff. As a matter of fact everyone is brilliant in this film. Truly an underrated classic.

  11. Jason's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Welles as a filmmaker remained something of an amateur on an adventure. In the very best sense. He would barely corral resources and go out and make something that he would sort of have to figure out as he went along. Chimes takes a lot of stabs at different things. It is a real mishmash. And there are unquestionably some longueurs. But it would seem unfathomable to deny that this is Orson's finest performance.

  13. Muraki's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    I thought it was a long movie, But it's certainly a great one to see. the acting & the use of English old accent were immense.

  14. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

  15. TheCinemaAdventurist's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Visually it's beautiful, but Welles uses Shakespeare dialogue so it's difficult to follow at times if you aren't familiar with Shakespearian dialogue.

  17. patchwork's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Welles enorme (in tutti i sensi). Nolan dovrebbe studiarsi a memoria la sequenza della battaglia per capire come si gira davvero una scena d'azione concitata

  18. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Welles pieces together bits from separate plays by the bard to tell the story of Falstaff, played perfectly by Orson himself. The cinematography, like all of his films, is absolutely stellar. The best scene, the big battle, is shot with an in the action feel that gives it a trance like life that engrosses the viewer in it's impressive virtuosity with it's filmmaking.

  19. Zac Weber's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Luckily I am familiar with the history at play, because I would challenge anyone who claims they understand more than fifty percent of the dialogue. Welles' bulbous on-screen presence is enormous, but I was often straining to decipher his bumbling groans disguised as language. The black and white compositions are incredible, and scenes like the famous Battle of Shrewsbury really come to life in the new restoration.

  21. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    The battle and the rejection scene stand out in this versatile film. A feast for the eyes.

  22. José Luis Treviño Sandoval's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    Comencé a verla pero no pude soportar los subtítulos terriblemente desincronizados (y ocasionalmente el audio levemente también). Además, el sonido en general de esta versión es horrendo, sube y baja cuando quiere. Mubi apesta.

  23. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Chimes at Midnight

    For me this film is one of the best Shakespeare adaptions. I always liked the way Orson Welles focuses on the character of Sir John Falstaff and the relationship with his royal companion and later King Henry V. by using sequences form five different plays. The actors - especially Welles himself, but also Margaret Rutherford, John Gielgud and Keith Baxter - are marvelous.
