Magician Doc Trailer

"I always liked Hollywood very much, it just wasn't reciprocated." Cohen Media has debuted the official trailer for a new documentary titled Magician about the one-and-only Orson Welles, the legendary filmmaker/actor/producer who left quite a legacy. While many of us are already very familiar with Orson, this doc spans his entire career looking at his tumultuous relationship with Hollywood and his impact on it featuring interviews with Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich, Frank Marshall, Anthony Perkins, Martin Scorsese, Sydney Pollack, Steven Spielberg and many others. This also comes on the same day as Welles' F for Fake hits Blu-Ray and we near his 100th birthday. It looks like a fun and fascinating doc for all to enjoy.

Here's the official trailer for Chuck Workman's documentary Magician, uploaded directly to YouTube:

Chuck Workman's documentary Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles (the full title) looks at the remarkable genius of Orson Welles on the eve of his centenary - the enigma of his career as a Hollywood star, a Hollywood director (for some a Hollywood failure), and a crucially important independent filmmaker. From Oscar-winning (for making the Best Live Action Short Film Precious Images in 1986) filmmaker Chuck Workman, who has worked an an editor and director on docs and shows (like the Academy Awards) for years. The film premiered at the Telluride & Mill Valley Film Festivals, and will be released this winter. Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles will be out December 12th. Curious?
