Critic Reviews for The Other Side of the Wind
Overall, Wind magnificently displays Welles' filmmaking brilliance while baring the aging auteur's frailties and frustrations.
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.
A cracked, corrosive, savagely compromised vision it unmistakably is. A mock documentary avant la lettre, Other Side of the Wind has a jagged syntax that would have felt startling in the '70s and, decades later, has lost little of its restless vitality.
Even if it may not exactly be the movie its creator would have made, the artifact is still a thorny, inventive, brain-melting tour de force that confirms Welles's skill at finding beauty and meaning within chaos.
Audience Reviews for The Other Side of the Wind
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.
