The Third Man, which is not a film he directed, does not make sense? And does not have a compelling story and compelling characters?
I didn't like it...

I remember reading a rumor somewhere that Orson Welles had played a hand in directing, but this was debunked. I personally think it is not just Carol Reed's best film (out of the ones I've seen) but also one of the best, if not the best, British film ever made

Welles made at least some contributions to the 3rd Man, re-wrote some of his lines, at least he wrote that famous cuckoo clock speech.

It is a fantastic film.

The weird angles on THE THIRD MAN seem kinda Welles-like, but I have no idea if he contributed to the directing.

I think it is a good, not great, movie.
