Written and directed by Henry Jaglom, SOMEONE TO LOVE is an autobiographical film that also features Jaglom as a character, Danny Sapir, who happens to direct movies identical to Jaglom's own. Danny throws a Valentine's Day party for his lonely friends. The guests arrive at the old movie

palace where the party is held. Among them is a mysterious presence that appears at the back of the movie theater, Danny's friend, played by Orson Welles. Accompanied by a camera crew, Danny asks his guests a series of questions about being alone, childhood dreams, and love. An introspective film

about films, SOMEONE TO LOVE is a brilliant example of a filmed diary, but there is much in it that will turn away viewers. Jaglom's probing is often abrasive and inconsiderate; musical interludes are thrown into the film sporadically to alleviate audience tension. Notwithstanding Jaglom's vision

and honesty, the reason most viewers will see SOMEONE TO LOVE is the presence of Welles in his final film appearance. He sits in the back of the theater declaring his beliefs, serving as Jaglom's mentor, guiding him from the first frame to the last. Like the theater facing demolition, Welles is a

part of the past.
