Lost Orson Welles Movie Finally Coming Out, Looks Insane

Now, thanks to effort to complete the film, it'll finally see cinemas and the first trailer has arrived. One of the most important and talented filmmakers of any generation, Welles never wanted to play by Hollywood's rules and was relegated to making movies in Europe for most of his later life, only acting or doing famously inebriated wine commercials to pay for said projects. He raised money for the project where he could, filming it in the early 1970s, and while shooting was almost complete by 1976, Welles died in 1985 without a final version.

'The Other Side of the Wind' will be released on Netflix Friday, 2nd November.

Directed by Welles and produced by Frank Marshall and Filip Jan Rymsza, The Other Side Of The Wind is a satire of both the classic studio system and the "New Hollywood that was shaking things up", framed as a mockumentary that incorporates a film-within-a-film satirising Michelangelo Antonioni (L'Avventura, La Notte, L'Eclisse, Blowup).

In an interview with Bogdanovich, Welles spoke before his death about his hopes for the then-unfinished film.

In 1970, legendary director Orson Welles (CITIZEN KANE) began filming what would ultimately be his final cinematic opus with a cast of Hollywood luminaries including John Huston, Peter Bogdanovich, Susan Strasberg and Welles's partner during his later years, Oja Kodar. The production was beset with financial issues and was notoriously never released in any form. "Jake" Hannaford (a revelatory John Huston) returns from years overseas in Europe to a changed Hollywood, where he attempts to make his comeback: a career summation that can only be the work of cinema's most adventurous filmmaker, Orson Welles.

Featuring a new score by Oscar-winning composer Michel Legrand and reassembled by a technical team including Oscar-winning editor Bob Murawski, THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND is Orson Welles's vision fulfilled. Many of these were never completed, but now, finally, after almost 50 years since it started production, Welles' final film, The Other Side of the Wind, is about to be released.
