Add my review

Experimental but visually stunning
By Jack Anderson on November 18, 2018

The Other Side of the Wind is very complex. A film within the film, telling the story of a film being shot. All the narratives are crossing each other, which makes rating this film almost impossible.
What is certain is that Orson Welles had such a talent for visual telling. The film within the film is mesmerisingly magical. Also, the way the characters are shot in the... behind the scenes... scenes is sublime.
For that alone, I’ll give the move 5. But still, the film is too experimental for me to really appreciate. This is clearly an exercise that moviegoers like me will appreciate, but I can easily understand if most of the general viewers will not even stop to watch this film, and if they do start to watch it, they’ll probably drop after a couple of minutes.

A great gift for any fan of Orson Welles, visually stunning. I give it 6 out of 10.
