The Other Side Of The Wind Review | A Master’s Cynical Take On Hollywood

Well it seems that Welles will have one final shot at award season. After an elongated, Kafka-esque process, The Other Side of the Wind has finally been released on Netflix more than 40 years after filming was completed on the project. Although in some ways it feels its age, the film is a delightfully sardonic mockumentary about old-school Hollywood, brimming with wit, fury, and desperation.

  1. I’ve know about this movie’s rocky production history for almost a decade, and finally glad it got release. Got to say, sounds like my kind of movie, though that’s a shame there isn’t much to the characters. I think the cynical look into film criticism will make it up for me. Not experienced much in Welles filmography, but the few I’ve seen have been impressive. I could finally scratch this one of the list at some point. Now here’s hoping someday The Day the Clown Cries also receives some kind of release in the future.
