  1. Ethan's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Through all the different versions of this film there is still an intriguing story here and Welles presents it beautifully here.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Scénario complexe, embrouillé à plaisir, avec une floraison de scènes décousues, au style heurté, sans transition apparemment cohérente. Le tout, pour une histoire fascinante de descente aux enfers où Welles inscrit toutes ses obsessions familières, avec une maîtrise et un brio qui provoquent admiration et respect... www.cinefiches.com

  5. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

  6. Nikita Rasskazov's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    What could this film be without raping by studios? A masterpiece. And now it is heavily cut kaleidoscopic race of images often shot in Soviet Montage style. But Gregory Arkadin, another magnificent and at the same time disgusting character played by Welles is already enough to excuse all the flaws.

  7. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    There are only so many times you can tilt a camera before it gets gimmicky. This is Welles usually wonderful style overripe and unfocused. Kind of annoying, really.

  8. Muraki's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    a must-see (in bluray) film noir

  9. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

  10. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    As usual, Welles has an eye. He never creates an uninteresting frame. The disembodied sound is distracting, though. The story itself isn't bad. I was held, particularly by the bravura turns of the extraordinary cast.

  11. Shea Hennum's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    I can't believe this is literally the only movie this Orson Welles fellow ever made. Quite good for a debut feature.

  12. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Somewhere up in cinema heaven, Welles might be sipping claret and smiling that his film about burying the truth doesn't even have an agreed-upon version. Having watched the 2006 "comprehensive" cut, it's a weird paranoid noir nightmare of post-war Europe, coming up short even on its own narrative terms, but constantly moving and turning up striking atmosphere and imagery. I'd take its chaos over The Stranger's order.

  13. svulps's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    I could't find the plot intriguing at all, neither the characters. Nevertheless Welles style saved the movie.

  14. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Only saw this recently-- if I had come across it alongside more "finished" early films, I might not have appreciated its uncanny pleasures-- the more incoherent the plot, the better.

  15. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Other English title : Mr. ARKADIN Autre titre FR : MONSIEUR ARKADIN

  16. SpacePirate's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Mediocre Welles film that could have been great without all the horrendous dubbing and his hideous fake beard, which was totally distracting. Some cool camera angles and stuff like that though so worth a look

  17. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    The film itself is a complete mystery to me. It is as ancient and distant as the bible.

  18. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    I can't believe i'm saying this, but Welles' style hurts the film. The issue is that the dizzying esthetic makes it difficult for me to follow this plot which was already difficult to comprehend due to all the awful accents and lack of subtitles. The style is also too bombastic and after a while becomes tiring to watch. It does improve in the last third, but by that point the damage is done. 2nd viewing may improve

  19. azoulay's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    De la délectation de suivre une histoire qui toujours nous transporte au limites des choses, rocambolesque Orson Welles , avec cette camera qui virevolte et se pose comme un oiseau pour nous donner de nouvelles façons de voir le monde. On finit même par se demander si Welles n'est pas trop grand pour les modestes dimensions de l'ouvrage et puis non après tout les génies ont aussi droit à l'artisanat!

  20. Ghostman's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

  21. macmartin70@yahoo.fr's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Orson welles étire encore son sujet/double mythomane et fantasmagorique. Cette figure de la réussite qui cache toujours un trouble. Où aucune accession professionnelle et sociale n'est possible sans nuire aux autres. A voir absolument pour se rendre compte de la virtuosité du montage.

  22. s8lal's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Génialissime film, une photographie parfaite.

  23. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    ★★★★ millions of secrets.

  24. A47's rating of the film Mr. Arkadin

    Squeezing the max expression out of every frame at the expense of continuity, and Mr. Arkadin is still enthralling.
