This year marks the 70th anniversary of the release of The Third Man, Carol Reed's masterpiece mystery-thriller featuring probably the most charismatic and memorable performances by Orson Welles. With the film now showing at our Curzon Bloomsbury cinema, we deep dive into the visual world of the legendary actor-director.
With exclusive access to hundreds of private drawings and paintings, Cousins explores Welles through his own eyes, sketched with his own hand, painted with his own brush. Executive produced by Michael Moore, 'The Eyes of Orson Welles' brings vividly to life the passions, politics and power of this brilliant 20th-century showman, and explores how the genius of Welles still resonates more than 30 years after his death.
