Confidential Report/Mr. Arkadin

When: Sun., May 3, 6:30 p.m. 2015

Greatness lurks inside this tangled mess, one of many times that Welles’s intentions were gummed up by studio intervention. Like Citizen Kane, this film uses the plot device of one man investigating the life of another, only to find deaths in the past of Mr. Arkadin, played by Welles with equal parts charm and menace. An underrated film in Welles’s canon, this look into the secrets of a man’s past doesn’t give us an answer as symbolic as a sled, instead suggesting that sometimes there are not simple reasons for the evil in men’s hearts.
