I remember seeing Orson Welles's version of Othello on video when I was a kid and it's part of the reason I turned into such a Shakespeare nut as a teenager. It's a killer flick, and I had the sudden urge to buy it on DVD... but it's OOP, and although I can find it used, it doesn't look like a terrific release. (Am I wrong about that? I hope so.) Which got me to thinking, besides Citizen Kane and the new Criterion F for Fake, Welles really has gotten the shaft on DVD. Which is funny, since according to the Sight & Sound poll 2002, Welles is the most-favored director among criticsn and other filmmakers. Why don't the home-video guys feel the same way? I'd love to see Chimes at Midnight/Falstaff, Othello, Magnificent Ambersons (I know that one has been talked about a lot), Lady from Shanghai, The Stranger... all those movies deserve better releases. Is there any word on any of these getting released? Are there any petitions I can sign anywhere to get them happening? Are there any current DVD releases of his films (especially Othello) that I should be looking for before complaining? Cheers.
