The Long-Awaited Film has Arrived
The Other Side of the Wind is not a perfect film, but perhaps the perfect film to punctuate Orson Welles’ incredible and monolithic career, and certainly the most appropriate film to leave unfinished due to difficulty in production. Or perhaps it is the genius of Welles to have left the film unfinished on purpose?
The film focuses on “the man, the myth, the legend” type J.J. Hannaford, who is making his comeback film after a long hiatus of being out of touch with the modern movie realm. He celebrates his birthday by having a documentary team, friends, associates, and others join him for a showing of his new film “The Other Side of the Wind” starring his striking new lead actor Johnny Dale and lead actress (who is nameless according to the bill). What ensues is a chaotic, fast-paced bombardment of quick edits, snappy dialog, a movin’ sound track, and fantastic camera-work sandwiched between the hypnotic, near-legato, orchestral moments of Hannaford’s film “The Other Side of the Wind”.
It took me about 25 min to get used to the faced-paced, almost bravado tone of the editing because I wanted more time to saturate the emotions and facial expressions of the characters. This is why I think the sections that show Hannaford’s film stick out even more though; finally having time to “breath” (if you will) versus the zaniness of being in the business (reality). It even feels at times that Hannaford himself is drowning and just wants to breath. Even still, does Welles conduct an amazing performance from the grizzled-veteran John Huston, who nails the semi-pretentious over-indulgent Hannaford to a tee.
The highlights of Welles’ last picture surely come from the technical aspects of the production, the anticipation born from it’s long-troubled existence of coming to fruition, and the lead performance from Huston. I must say there are a handful of poignant, enigmatic scenes that truly hypnotize such as “The Other Side of the Wind”s rather incredible car scene, which for me was the true top moment of this feature. The camerawork changing from black and white to deep color is used to great effect as well.
I suppose we will never know if what we have today is truly Welles’ vision fully intact, or just a shadow of what is was supposed to be. The Other Side of the Wind is definitely for any fans of Orson Welles and for those who enjoy seeing filmmaking done years ahead of its time. I feel like I must say that this film isn’t getting praise from me simply because Welles’ name is slapped on it, but good because there are a bunch of things to appreciate.
Final Tragic Entry Into Welles’ Career
The Other Side Of The Wind follows the events leading up to the death of an aging, great director as he worked to try and finish a film that would be his comeback. The plot of the film mirrors the actual one of Orson Welles’ life. What the picture means to Huston’s character in the film, is what this film was to Orson. It was his last attempt to make something that would bring him back into the light. It’s a tragedy someone as brilliant as him was diminished to making films like this by the end of his career.
It’s hard to truly consider this one of Orson’s films as it is comprised of unfinished footage and released 32 years after he died. However, it still bears the mark he left on all of his pictures and is certainly very similar to F For Fake. The documentary style, the cinematography and rapid cuts are all reminiscent of the above mentioned. But as novel as F For Fake is this film might even be more avant grade. It’s something you’ve never seen before and won’t see again. Could I say it’s a great film? Probably not. But behind the disorderd array that Orson presents, shine gleams of his genius. This picture is really just for those fervent fans of Orson who appreciate not just the films he made but the style he made them with. And somewhere in all of this you’ll find pieces of that magnificent, unique style.
Those behind this film tried their best to create something closest to what Orson intended and perhaps they succeeded. No will ever no for sure.
