The Anderson Tapes (1971) 5.5/10

All that beeping and screeching of the surveillance tapes made me nuts. Almost shut the movie off several times - I probably should have.
One great thing in this movie: Martin Balsam playing a flaming pansy. simply awesome. For that reason only, catch this movie the next time it plays on TCM.

Charles Foster Kane may have been ambivalent. A Nazi is not.
The Third Man

There he plays a fascinating monster. His best role outside his own films.

haven't seen it.

I think the only Welles roles I have seen outside his own movies, were the ones where he plays the lawyer for Leopold & Loeb, and the one where he plays that Turkish general. Forgot the name of those movies. (Truth is, he directed parts of those movies, too).

Then you don't know much about Welles.

And, actually, he plays in most of his own films often negative characters, or at least dubious ones.

Overall he was more a bad guy actor. The Third Man is probably despite Citizen Kane his most famous film. One of which many think that it was also directed by him.

yes I know about The Third Man although I haven't seen it. And no, it is not more famous than Citizen Kane.

I've seen some Welles movies but I can't say I've seen 'em all.

btw, I think he did a great acting job on Citizen Kane, which doesn't get mentioned much with all the talk about that movie's technical groundbreaking-ness.

The Third Man is more popular, at least here in Germany. CK has a reputation, but TTM has not only a similar reputation, it also has greater commercial flair. One reason is of course the beautiful and popular zither score.

well maybe that's the case in Germany cuz the movie takes place in Austria.

But in America, and I suspect in (at least most of) the rest of the world, Citizen Kane is more famous than The Third Man, (and almost any other movie, for that matter). Certainly among critics/directors/cineastes. Among average fans of Golden-Era movies, I'd bet any money at any odds that that was the case too, although I can't tell ya that I've taken any surveys.

For whatever it's worth, on IMDB, CK has been rated by over 204,000 fans, while TTM has been rated by just over 76,000.

The River (1951) - 6/10
An interesting film though quite boring from time to time. I felt the narration weighed down the storytelling. Some great-looking Technicolor shots scattered throughout. The actor who played Captain John was the film's [acting] high point. Far from a great actor of the time, though surprising that he was non-professional.

Thomas Breen, the guy who played Capt. John, was the son of Joseph Breen.

 I might go a drop higher, like a 7/10, but I disagree with those who call it a masterpiece. Roger Ebert included this in his list of Great Movies, and in his review http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-the-river-le-fleuve-1951 he says that Martin Scorsese called this one and The Red Shoes "the two most beautiful color films ever made," and Ebert says Scorsese told him that he watches the movie "three times a year; sometimes four."

I agree that the film is pretty to look at, but I don't think it's anywhere near a masterpiece.

Doesn't the narration seems to dominate this movie more than almost any other, besides The Old Man and the Sea? I think the narrator's dialogue may be longer than the other characters' dialogue!
