  • It's impossible to say whether the resulting product is what Welles would have created, but what exists certainly provides much food for thought.

    February 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Sure to be wildly overpraised and cursorily dismissed, The Other Side of the Wind is often awful and frequently great, occasionally at the same time. The main thing is that it gives Welles the last word.

    January 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Overall, Wind magnificently displays Welles' filmmaking brilliance while baring the aging auteur's frailties and frustrations.

    November 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Welles and his collaborators have made an almost weightless film of ellipses and shards; as the camera ricochets at surprising angles and scenes slide into one another, the project recalls the energy and dynamism of Jean-Luc Godard.

    November 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Orson Welles' final film is an infuriating, brilliant, personal sign off, filled with stunning images, wit and bravura to spare. In short it's everything you hoped it would be.

    November 5, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Having seen it, my overwhelming feeling is not exaltation but sadness. I look at this maddening pastiche and think of all the great movies he might have made.

Audience Reviews for The Other Side of the Wind

  • Nov 03, 2018
    The concept is deceptively pedestrian but it allows Welles to play around with a lot of different ideas. Most interesting is his examination of how "Auteur Machismo" is ultimately just bullshit, perfectly articulated by the pretentious and shallow film within the film.
