Orson Welles Ranked

A ranked list of the 13 films Orson Welles directed and were completed, whether by him or edited later best to his original intent. As with all lists this one is subjective and in no way a claim of definitive ranking. Ranking is subject to change as I continually rewatch and reevaluate films from the list.
