Directed by Orson Welles | 1942

With Joseph Cotten, Dolores Costello, Anne Baxter

“The emotional sense of America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries is so palpable you can taste it.”
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Orson Welles’ follow up to Citizen Kane was this masterful account of an aristocratic Indianapolis family’s decline at the turn of the century, deploying dazzlingly expressive mise-en-scène to evoke the look and feel of a vanished era. The film was infamously edited by RKO against the director’s wishes, but thankfully the studio’s tampering doesn’t diminish the poignancy of Welles’ vision. 

Alex Ross Perry: "I wanted very badly to use an omniscient third-person narrator in Listen Up Philip. Whenever somebody arrogantly asks why I would deploy a 'lazy technique' in a medium which should 'show and not tell' I wonder if they have ever seen what Orson Welles does with the device here, and how sad and under viewed they must be to maintain the belief that narration negates rather than enhances the power of the images."
