Introducing 10 Minutes or Less

Inside Criterion / On the Channel — Jan 31, 2018


No time for a whole movie? 10 Minutes or Less, a weekly updated selection of short videos featured right underneath the spotlight on the Criterion Channel on FilmStruck, makes it easy to dip in anytime and find a little something to watch. To give you a sense of what this new section offers, we’re sharing On the Nose, an investigation into one of Orson Welles’s favorite actorly aids: prosthetics. The piece, by visual effects artist Randall William Cook and critic and video essayist David Cairns, sniffs out the actor’s motivations for using “a false nose, usually as large as I can find,” to get into character for many of his most towering screen performances.
