Goofs

Several people interviewed in this documentary claimed that Orson Welles may never have intended to finish his film 'Other Side of the Wind'. However, several key reasons why the film was not completed - including the 1979 Iranian Revolution, a complete failure to raise any additional capital after his AMA award speech and a legal dispute over ownership of materials - could not have possibly been foreseen by Welles. Moreover, he would not put all the effort into bringing an expensive lawsuit if the ownership dispute conveniently served his original purpose of never finishing the film. If the lawsuit and the failed capital raise were all part of the plan for making an interesting film, no evidence is presented to support this assertion (nor do the filmmakers explicitly state this was the case).

Will they though?
17 December 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The title obviously makes the point that some artists only get recognized after they die. And it is true that many artists had issues. Welles on the other hand was highly regarded. Actually this documentary makes the point that he and his masterpiece Citizen Kane were loved - so much that he could never live up to it. Or rather none of the movies he did after that.

Now that are issues that some people would love to have. On the other hand, someone like Hitchcock made many good movies and he never fell into that trap. But back to this: Many of his peers talk about him and there is a big amount of the time dedicated to the last movie Welles never actually finished. He shot it for so many years, but never seemed satisfied. From what I have seen so far, it might have been ahead of its time back then - obviously the cut of The other side of the wind that is now available to watch via stream is not the one Welles would have released. Still it is the footage he shot, so more on that on the other page. This documentary is quite revealing when it comes to Welles character - with enough footage of him, but also a lot of people who were close to him, talking about their experience ... Essential in a way
