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.

I think he did that in a lot of the films he acted in

I just finished reading Josh Karp's excellent book "Orson Welles's Last Movie: The Making of The Other Side of the Wind" (2016) and am now very pumped for this release.

What we know is that he contributed dialogues and shaped his character, not that he actually directed some of his scenes.

I've just seen him in 'Three Cases of Murder.' It's a portmanteau type of film. He appears in the last story. Very good. By that time he had really developed his halting type of speech to perfection.

As I said above, the theory that he directed some scenes has been largely debunked and is quite disrespectful to Reed. That Welles contributed dialogue and shaped his character is no different from what he seems to have done in any film that he actually cared about and wasn't just doing for the money.

This is an interesting quote there:

"On a style level, it's cut in a way that feels slightly beyond where we are now. It's got a very fast, collage-like feel."

I've read that the cutting is quite remarkable so am looking forward to checking it out.
