“You know nothing about wickedness.” Orson Welles (Citizen Kane) directs and stars in this weird, wonderfully convoluted noir as sailor Michael, who meets beautiful Elsa (Rita Hayworth) in Central Park. Attracted to her, he accepts a job aboard her husband’s yacht and finds himself a pawn in a game of murder. Audaciously stylish, it’s a disturbing and brilliant noir. “Complex, courageous, and utterly compelling.” – ***** Geoff Andrew, Time Out
