“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".

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.
