Think chiaroscuro lighting and fluid camera movement. Think clever dialogue and a story arc you can’t predict. The Center opens its Thursday film series (Back-story: Reel People at the Cherry), that delves into the work of Orson Welles, director, writer and actor most well-known for the impeccably crafted and controversial Citizen Kane. Carmel artist Malcolm Weintraub provides context and commentary on three films that explore the filmmmaker’s thoughts on justice. At the first showing, Weintraub guides viewers through the 1947 film The Lady from Shanghai, starring Welles and his then wife Rita Hayworth. Sailor Michael O’Hara (Welles) joins the crew of a yacht, becomes involved with the owner’s wife (Hayworth), and gets wrapped up in a murder mystery. Those who attend should have plenty to mull over during and after the event. [SS]
