Orson Welles was born 105 years ago today! Does anybody else consider this their favorite Welles movie? It's maybe a close call against Touch of Evil but The Lady From Shanghai ekes one out for me because hey, it doesn't have Charlton Heston playing Mexican! I get why Citizen Kane is momentous and revered but all the times I've watched it I have never felt much of an emotional connection to it -- no matter how far away from film school I get it still always feels like a book report. The Lady From Shanghai's got it all though.
