Goofs

The filmmakers explicitly state at the end of this documentary that the greatest contribution of 'Other Side of the Wind' may be that Orson Welles created the modern documentary film. While we can debate whether that was his intent with OSOTW, the fact is that documentaries have been around since before the 1920s. Documentaries were always very popular way before Orson commenced work on OSOTW. No attempt is made to illustrate why OSOTW may have changed the way we view documentaries from before that time (assuming they meant to say Welles changed the style of documentaries, as opposed to claiming he created documentaries in general, which may be a generous interpretation).

But that doesn't take away that they did a good job
8 November 2018 | by puraheySee all my reviews

I was doing OK with this entertaining, very original documentary remembering a brilliant movie genious ... until I started feeling dizzy and somehow nauseaus with so many quick changes of very different artistic scenes put together. Wells's movies had a fast pace: this documentary is even faster and weirder.
