Critic Reviews for The Other Side of the Wind
It's impossible to say whether the resulting product is what Welles would have created, but what exists certainly provides much food for thought.
Overall, Wind magnificently displays Welles' filmmaking brilliance while baring the aging auteur's frailties and frustrations.
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.
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.
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.
