228. The Other Side of the Wind
Matt and Ed celebrate the biggest cinephile event of 2018 on this week's episode: the release of Orson Welles' The Other Side of the Wind, which hit selected theatres and Netflix this past Friday. They detail the film's long journey to completion - its chaotic stop-start production in the early 1970s, myriad financial stumbles, Welles' death, and its eventual resurrection at the hands of several of his most high-profile disciples - as well as the film itself, how its approach to editing was decades ahead of its time (even as its story and themes were firmly rooted in not only the New Hollywood, but Welles' own life), and the effort that went into finishing a notoriously incomplete movie.
