A more straightforward doc would have served the film better, and likely made people who chose to watch it before Wind more curious about the film itself.

"Less hubristic than its source material, Morgan Neville's softer version of this project is perhaps more satisfying."
November 9, 2018
This comes off better than Welles' supposed masterpiece. It gives great context into the film business in the 70s and Welles' struggle to find his place within it.

With this documentary, Morgan Neville has made a movie about Orson Welles that would have transfixed the great master himself.
November 9, 2018
A window into Welles' hall-of-mirrors mind.
November 7, 2018
Extraordinarily entertaining.

Docu about Welles' unfinished final film; sex, nudity.

[Not] just a companion piece to The Other Side of the Wind. As it turns out, bearing Welles's words in mind, it becomes almost a meta version of Welles's movie. I would like to think that the great magician himself would have approved.

Fans of the great Orson Welles who are curious about why he never finished his last film should not miss director Morgan Neville's revealing documentary.

It's frenzied, jumbled, morose-much like The Other Side of the Wind.

The movie can't help but portray [Welles] as an inspired and inspiring figure.

November 1, 2018
The impeccably assembled production employs Neville's virtuoso touch to provocative effect.
