Orson Welles - Always larger than life

I enjoyed Richard Linklater's Me and Orson Welles (2009).  It took me back in time to witness the charm and arrogance of Mr. Welles behind the scenes.  Welles has always dominated everything in his path. Although the relationship between Efron and Danes characters was at the center of the story, the genius of Orson Welles, the man, demanded your attention. Whether running around town by ambulance, making enemies or history in the Mercury Theatre, Linklater's Orson Welles was larger than life, shadowing the sweet coming of age story that managed to shine through.
