a few brief notes on THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI

the lady from shanghai is such a peculiar eccentric batshit mess of a movie that could only have been made by a genius or a madman (or both). so much screentime is given to quirks & ticks, but they all accumulate & add to the nightmarish “otherness” of the feverish voyage.

also interesting is that unlike hitchcock (& many others), welles seems to bend over backwards to include as much of hayworth’s body in every shot as is possible (never cutting, never piecemeal). even her close-ups are gigantic in a way where the viewer is almost swallowing her, consuming her. the entire film is perfumed by her. now that’s love.

what an insane movie.
