The Tragedy of Othello: The Moor of Venice

Orson Welles United States, 1951

Maudealan's rating of the film Othello

This is the first of the Welles Shakespeare's I've seen as part of this big rewatch, and even with the famous money problems the overall look and mise-en-scene are probably what I like most and remember most about it, but it also seems sort of restrained in a way you wouldn't imagine Shakespeare-Welles to be. It may just be me, I don't know.
