Sinopsis: Book by McBride Joseph

Críticas: "The virtue of McBride's book is its anecdote-illuminated account of Welles's later years. As a film historian" -- Washington Post Book World "Provocatively challenges conventional wisdom about Welles's supposed creative decline." -- Turner Classic Movies "McBride's intimate portrait revealsa man consumed by the love of filmmaking and besieged by a Hollywood more interested incelebrity Schadenfreude than art." -- Tucson Sun "Indispensable. Joseph McBride's What Ever Happened to Orson Welles? is a brilliantly detailed and authoritative work of scholarship and" -- Steven Bach, author of Final Cut: Dreams and Disaster in the Making of Heaven's "Scores of books have been written about Orson Welles since his death in 1985, some by colleagues of the great director, others by film scholars. Readers will find the best of both worlds in Joseph McBride's What Ever Happened to Orson Welles?" -- Springfield (MA) Republican "McBride is heartfelt in his advocacy, and the book continues to compel throughout." -- Sight & Sound "McBride supplies a missing piece of the jigsaw.... Presents a balanced and complex picture of an extremely talented, but difficult, personality whose personal flaws are less important than what he attempted to achieve." -- November 3rd Club "A detailed look at Welles's later years. McBride was in and out of Welles's orbit for the last fifteen years of the man's life, and he writes warmly about the director's later activities; but he is forthright and honest enough to say that on some crucial level the relationship never clicked." -- New York Review of Books "A must have for the Wellesian scholar (or worshipper), fans of old Hollywood, or those looking for insight into the mind of directors. It is a fascinating look at a larger than life filmmaking genius that was always ahead of his time and a highly recommended read." -- Monsters and Critics "A definitive study, informed by his friendship and collaboration with the Hollywood legend and discussions with people who know Welles." -- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "There has been so much written and said about Orson Welles over the years, and quite a bit of it has been fixated on the myth of his self-destruction at the expense of everything else: Welles has become the epitome of fallen genius, our fallen genius. Joseph McBride, who has a clearer understanding of Welles and his films than almost anyone, exposes that idea as the myth it is and always has been. He brings Welles and the difficulties he faced" -- Martin Scorsese "Personal and passionate." -- Los Angeles Times "Packed with information that can't be found elsewhere, Joseph McBride's What Ever Happened to Orson Welles? not only answers the question posed by his title; it also fruitfully redirects our sense of Welles's life and career. Best of all, it's sympathetic and serious without ever becoming a whitewash. McBride's protracted experience as an actor for Welles gives him many special insights, and what emerges is a scrupulous, balanced, well-researched, three-dimensional portrait." -- Jonathan Rosenbaum "McBride on Welles is many things: as biography, it presents the untold story of how McCarthyism warped Welles' career like so many others; as the history of a reputation it forms an expose of how the insidious and typically American distrust of the artist's mode of being obscured and caricatured the second and third acts of a consummate artist even as he went on making masterpieces; as monograph it documents the wild constellation of unfinished and even unstarted projects that never had their chances of being masterpieces; as eyewitness account of Welles' working methods it contains a covert memoir of apprenticeship, and a very tender-hearted one at that. As with the invaluable accounts of Dickens written during Dickens' lifetime, McBride has charted a course through the smoke for all future scholarship (and, one prays, film restoration). Twenty-first Century Welles research begins here." -- Jonathan Lethem "Its value is twofold: as a biography for Welles fans and as a history of film industry operations and politics." -- California Bookwatch "Welles fans" -- Booklist "McBride, a marvelous critic and biographer, has written a lively portrait of Welles-as-independent-artist.... Invaluable." -- Bookforum "McBride's combination of personal reflection and scholarly analysis makes the book rigorous and affectionate, academic and deeply moving, infuriating and celebratory.... A book against which all future writings on the subject will be measured." -- American Cinematographer
