Then get ready for something unlike any of those or unlike anything. This is the mockumentary before Reiner or Guest, the improvisational dramedy before Apatow. The entire point of this movie is that there's no point to this movie. Here is Orson Welles's most talked about movie about talking about a movie. His film about a film within a film. Orson Welles deliberately subverts Orson Welles to make an art film contained within an art film making fun of art films. Peter Bogdanovich plays himself as his own ripoff. There's a party celebrating a celebrated filmmaker making a film making fun of filmmakers.
Nothing happens. So much happens. We learn everything about a legendary director about whom we learn nothing. This film is a glimpse into the psyche of a filmmaker who wants to make films but has no idea how to keep making films. He wants to be commercially successful without compromising his integrity. He wants to make personal films for an impersonal audience. He wants to make something sexy despite being prudish.
This movie isn't really for anyone; this movie is really for everyone.
Walk on the Wild Side (The Others, #13) by Christine Warren
It wasn't until the end of his life that Orson Welles realized the most important story he needed to tell was his own. It's a story whose only concern is that it was told, whether or not you like it. So watch it. Or don't. This movie doesn't care either way. And if this review left you feeling confused, then I gave you an accurate impression of the film.

The Other Side of the Wind review – lost Orson Welles epic is hurricane of anger and wit
Mar 4, Rating: 2. View All Critic Reviews Nov 03, The concept is deceptively pedestrian but it allows Welles to play around with a lot of different ideas. Most interesting is his examination of how "Auteur Machismo" is ultimately just bullshit, perfectly articulated by the pretentious and shallow film within the film. Alec B Super Reviewer.
