Chimes at Midnight

Companion Feature to THE EYES OF ORSON WELLES

1965 • dir Orson Welles w/Orson Welles, Jeanne Moreau, Margaret Rutherford • 115 min • DCP

A glorious pastiche of Shakespeare’s British history plays that combines bits from 4 different works to fill in the story of one of the most beloved supporting characters of all time, Sir John Falstaff.

Staff Pick: Dave

“Sprawling, and hugely ambitious, and containing a glorious Wellesian Falstaff who’s as majestic in folly as he is in girth.”
– Bob Mondello, NPR

“Chimes at Midnight reflects the director’s proclivity for out-of-step dreamers who prefer their lovely, useless fancies to cold, pragmatic practicalities.”
– Nick Pinkerton, Artforum
