This is a strange, disjointed and to a certain extent experimental film

It seems ironic that the film concentrates its themes on the death of old Hollywood and the avant-garde filmmakers considering this film and the film within it, transpire avant-garde elements in almost all its execution.

On The Other Side of the Wind is a film that will not satisfy any casual movie fan. I hate to sound pretentious but in this case it's like that. The film itself is enormously pretentious.

The whole story of its creative hell and all the time it took for the film to reach the screens, in this case Netflix, is ​​an important factor to see it but hardly defining and doesn't speak at all about the final quality it.
It's evident that Orson Welles conceived an incredibly ambitious film but also muddled and a bit incoherent.

This film is a piece of cinematographic history and that's why it's a must-see for any respected film lover. Now add it that is a film by Orson Wells. His last film and its myth grows even more.

As of right now I admit I don't think it's a masterpiece as it was mentioned but it's a very interesting film and I also believe it will grow more with future revisits, which it deserves and needs.

“Shoot all the boys and girls. Shoot them dead.”

Yep, it lived up to the hype.

'The Other Side of the Wind' is brilliant. Pure madness, pure cinema! Orson Welles lost masterpiece sees the light of day in glory fashion. Surprised about the amount of nudity, but then again, I'm not complaining.

While the story is simple, but also feels personal for Welles. The archery party inside the artist home.

Some of the wildest editing I've ever seen. It's almost like there's cameras everywhere, even in scenes where I'm guessing we shouldn't witness or hear. Like reality is a movie in itself. It works because every reaction is key and makes sense for it to jump around. Unlike 'Catwoman'.

40 years in development with unique results.

Overall rating: "Goodnight".

One of the best, freshest, and most ambitious films of 2018 was made in the 1970's by a director most famous for his work in the 1940's. And it was released on Netflix.

Appropriately, this audacious and dazzling spectacle serves as a bracing eulogy for Hollywood, skewering the myopic commercialism and vain pretensions of an aging industry/artform desperately seeking relevance and control amidst a rapidly changing and chaotic cultural landscape. In a year when formulaic Disney franchises and Lady Gaga star-vehicle remakes are being cynically pushed as "state of the art," it took Orson Welles to crash the party and give us one final reminder of what cinema can be if we're willing to dig deep enough. Though I suppose such criticism is just the other side of the wind.

Pasaron 40 años para que por fin podamos ver Al otro lado del viento, la obra póstuma de Orson Welles (no veo necesario explicar quien es) que no pudo ser finalizada por problemas de presupuesto. Netflix, junto con la edición de Bob MurawskiPasaron 40 años para que por fin podamos ver Al otro lado del viento, la obra póstuma de Orson Welles (no veo necesario explicar quien es) que no pudo ser finalizada por problemas de presupuesto. Netflix, junto con la edición de Bob Murawski y con Frank Marshall, productor de cintas como El Sexto Sentido y Mundo Jurásico, en la curaduría, son los encargados de traer esta cinta que ningún cinefilo debe pasar de alto. Pueden ver el documental "Me amarán cuando esté muerto", que explora los últimos 15 años de vida de Welles,incluyendo material sobre "Al otro lado del viento", también disponible en Netflix.

Imposible predecir como hubiera sido el corte final del director, pero esto tenemos, una película que tiene el sello de autor, en la que Welles plasmó a modo de sátira su opinión sobre el cine, sobre su cine. Con referencias a Godard, Felini y a otros directores europeos y americanos, esta obra satírica y extraña, es un acto de rebeldía bien planificado por parte de Welles, donde critica al cine europeo, hollywoodense, vanguardista a todas las etiquetas existentes e incluso a sus películas. Al otro lado del viento, además es un auto-retrato en donde Welles delinea con trazos toscos, desordenados e hilarantes la nemesis de un director de cine y el proceso de realización de una película, presentando la historia de Hannaford, un director frustrado que no puede completar su último proyecto. Durante la película vemos escenas de esta película inconclusa de Hannaford, una metáfora del rol femenino y masculino en el cine, y conocemos a personajes que son claras alusiones a personas reales que intervinieron en la vida del director. Como la severa crítica de Hannaford o los periodistas. Extraña, a primera vista, satírica y profética; no solo por la aproximación que hace sobre el cine moderno, sino por que la historia se convirtió en un flashback, invención de Welles, que refleja la carrera y vida de uno de los directores más importantes de la historia del cine, la obra más personal del legendario director y de lo mejor del año.

The unpublished, unknown final opus of Orson Welles is light years from his master jobs: Citizen Kane, Touch of evil and The third man. The matter is not absolutely clear of what genre belong the movie -satiric, XXX movie-, and the slowThe unpublished, unknown final opus of Orson Welles is light years from his master jobs: Citizen Kane, Touch of evil and The third man. The matter is not absolutely clear of what genre belong the movie -satiric, XXX movie-, and the slow pacing makes it sophomoric. The untold job of a genuis or a boasting brick, you decide. Expand
