Critic Reviews for The Other Side of the Wind

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (6)

I found it grandiloquent and emotionally vacant, notwithstanding some hilarious sendups of the period's pretensions.

A fascinating film, and watching this assemblage it occurred to me that it remained unfinished by Welles in his lifetime by design.

August 31, 2018 | Full Review…

A truly kinetic dispatch from a giant in twilight, and, in keeping with Welles' oeuvre, another inventively realized, no-holds-barred investigation of a complicated man and the environment that made him.

Messy and meandering, but always in that distinctive Wellesian way that proves his talent was unparalleled even when it fell apart.

Top Critic

An eccentric, rather choppy, but highly watchable movie, and Orson Welles is quite alive in it. You can feel the intensity of his DNA in its sinister atmosphere of garish noir depravity.

August 31, 2018 | Full Review…

From this perspective, it well surpasses what was widely thought to be possible and in no way feels like a transgression or a betrayal. Which is saying a lot.
