5th Annual Letterboxd Season Challenge
Week 1: Past Hosts Week
I like Joseph Cotten well enough, but when Orson Welles showed up—and then especially during the ferris wheel confrontation—good lord, I pretty much forgot Cotten was even in the shot. When we saw him for the first time and then he slowly smiled and gave Cotten that, "Welp, here we are" look I was... WHEW. Orson was some kind of charismatic.
The death scene on the spiral stairs was A Bit Much, but that last shot of Alida Valli walking up to AND THEN PAST Joseph Cotten was AMAZING. Sick burn, lady.
