THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND
2018, Netflix, 122 min, USA/France/Iran, Dir: Orson Welles

Legendary director Jake Hannaford (John Huston) celebrates his 70th birthday - which also happens to be the final day of his life - with a Hollywood party to end all Hollywood parties, a gathering in which the aging filmmaker confronts friends, enemies and his own demons in a whirlwind of vibrant celebration and scathing bitterness. Director Orson Welles calls back to his own CITIZEN KANE with another portrait of a larger-than-life titan, while also riffing on European art cinema of the era and looking forward to the new Hollywood that was already eclipsing his own. Peter Bogdanovich stars as a fictionalized version of himself - a hot young director surpassing his idol in terms of success and prestige - as do other major filmmakers and historians like Paul Mazursky, Dennis Hopper, Henry Jaglom and Joseph McBride. A love and hate letter to Hollywood that still looks modern more than 40 years after Welles began it, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND is a late masterpiece by one of the greatest directors who ever lived.
