Mr Arkadin

Ok, I had Mr Arkadin on the DVR since last August and finally got around to watching it. I've seen a few Welles movies over the years. Citizen Kane, The Stranger, The Third Man, Lady from Shanghai, Touch of Evil. All pretty good, with The Stranger being the best of the bunch for my taste. Now , Mr Arkadin. Watching that was like, I don't know how to describe it. To me it was...junk. I simply didn't get the movie at all. Am I just out to lunch on that movie and can't figure out what Welles was doing or is that movie simply not of great quality?

Have you seen *Journey Into Fear* (1943) in which Welles acted, produced? This film is a bit odd as well - he was working on *It's All True* at the time (we know how that turned out). Again, this may have been a different film if the editing was under Welles' supervision.
