Although wildly different in subject matter and approach, this week's "Invictus" and "Me and Orson Welles" share some common threads. Both movies examine single events in the lives of two larger-than-life figures told mostly from the perspectives of other lesser-known men. Both fail to tell us anything we didn't already know about their principal subjects -- one humble, the other a maniacal control freak.
