Update: The (Possibly) Great Unfinished Films – The Other Side of the Wind
The Other Side of the Wind (1972)
Dir. Orson Welles
Well, I am happy to report at least some semblance of progress on the release of Orson Welles’ great lost film, The Other Side of the Wind, which I did a profile on here.
The Guardian has just reported a development in the potential release of this unfinished masterpiece, and while it is met with some speculation over the potentially opportunistic nature of its completion without the direct participation of the author, the parties involved do seem to agree on its exhibition being of historical importance, and intend to release it with such reverence. I anxiously await the arrival of this film, and while I’m sure it will be met with a myriad of conflicted opinions on the nature of artistic intent, it will nonetheless another fascinating link in one of the most audacious and revolutionary careers in cinema.
