Un documental dinámico acerca de los avatares que rodearon la producción de Al Otro Lado del Viento. Me sorprendieron aspectos tales como la incursión del camarógrafo en el cine serie B ("el único hombre que trabajó con Ed Wood y Orson Welles") y el porno (¡Orson Welles lo ayudó a terminar el montaje de una!) y el quiebre en la amistad entre Welles y Bogdanovich. Buen trabajo de montaje con los materiales de archivo
Informative & entertaining, this documentary about the making, unmaking & eventual "re-making" of Welles's recently unearthed later work, the maddening & inscrutable The Other Side of the Wind, is obviously intended as a companion-piece to the film itself. Key collaborators offer anecdotes without introduction, creating through association a perception – albeit circumstantial – of the filmmaker & his intentions.
I had a difficult feeling during the film: the man genius who longed to be accepted yet sabotaged himself at every turn looking for something that would not disappoint him, someone who would not betray him. Did he wanted to finish his last chance to leave the citizen Kane's shadow? Yes, but then he would die in a way, no?
Made to contextualize a movie that needs it, so cheers for the nobility. But it suffers the same affliction as Neville's Mr. Rogers doc, which is that it shuffles through angles so quickly as part of a never-be-boring ethos that, as engaging as it is, you leave feeling scattered and sure the full story is more interesting. Your mileage may vary on having Alan Cumming MC the film, and the use of the Buzzcocks is odd.
THEY'LL LOVE ME WHEN I'M DEAD just gave us the reasons why Orson Welles' movie called THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND is unfinished. It never shows us the process of its restoration, editing, etc until we could see it on Netflix. But it wasn't just about Welles' unfinished movie. This documentary told the audience about how important this movie for him. Why it is called as a masterpiece that never made. Quite informative.
Neville's companion piece to Welles' 'The Other Side of the Wind' isn't much more than a glorified DVD style extra but does have some great tidbits and footage throughout. The problem is its' lack of depth and its choice in not revealing much about the restoration and editing of the final product.
at the age of 25, Welles made Citizen Kane and achieved the highest peak on his career. being 25, still being a leech to my parents and thinking her life going nowhere, this documentary is such an eye opening. just because you had it as early as you expected (and wanted), to meet the same expectations you put on yourself is really hard.
