The Other Side of the Wind | Ratings & Reviews

"It’s probably not a stretch to imagine that Orson Welles would’ve got a kick out of seeing his final, long-in-limbo picture The Other Side of the Wind released today—if only for the cinema-from-beyond-the-grave sleight-of-hand it represents. That someone other than the notoriously perfectionist Welles, namely editor Bob Murawski, has put the finishing touches on it—I’m less certain."

Flicks, Aaron YapFlicks

"An eccentric, rather choppy, but highly watchable movie, and Orson Welles is quite alive in it. You can feel the intensity of his DNA in its sinister atmosphere of garish noir depravity."


"Magic loomed large in the imagination of Orson Welles, and here is the maestro's final trick: a flabbergasting curveball tossed from beyond the grave, with a Harry Lime-sized smirk."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"Whatever its flaws, it is an enthralling portrait and a study of work destined always to be in progress."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"What can be said with certainty is that this version of Wind is perplexing, sometimes exhausting but never less than fascinating."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"What to call this Hollywood takedown from Orson Welles, besides the best 1970's movie to be released in the 21st century? It's also chaotic and jumbled and strictly for those who care about the history of film and its indispensable master builder."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

""The Other Side of the Wind" increasingly comes to resemble a shattered cinematic hall of mirrors."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"From this perspective, it well surpasses what was widely thought to be possible and in no way feels like a transgression or a betrayal. Which is saying a lot."
