What does Orson Welles do after making perhaps the greatest movie of all time? He gets basically exiled to Europe to make low-budget Shakespeare films. But are they any good? The guys look into his Othello adaptation and how he interprets the Moor of Venice. Without the resources of Hollywood, Welles uses real incredible settings and new tricks to bring gravitas to the leader who is being betrayed by Iago. And yes, they are distracted by the blackface pretty much the entire time.
