Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles

On the eve of his hundredth birthday, Orson Welles gets the biopic treatment from Academy Award-winner Chuck Workman (Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol). Magician features scenes from just about every existing Welles film, including clips from his final, unfinished works. Friend Peter Bogdanovich, lover Oja Kodar and biographers Joseph McBride and Simon Callow are among those interviewed--but it's the patchwork of film clips that provide the best portrait of the actor/filmmaker. Double-featured with The Lady from Shanghai. 94 minutes PG-13.
