Mike (@mumbles3k) and Max (@JMaxHegel) are watching all of Orson Welles’ directorial efforts leading up to The Other Side of the Wind, the director’s new film set to be released over 30 years after his death. Here, they discuss Chimes at Midnight aka Falstaff; the film that Welles himself considered his best work. It’s yet another dive into Shakespeare by way of the Silent Bob of plays, the character of Falstaff. Does Welles manage to pull off this entry in the Falstaff Cinematic Universe (FCU)? Is it as good as Citizen Kane? (Well, obviously not, but that question always seems to come up and they address it.)
Over 30 years after his death comes Orson Welles’ final film.
