You see a young actor on screen, playing the role of the main lead’s friend or sister or brother, and you’d think to yourself that you might possibly get to see more of them in future.

Morgan Neville: ‘They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead’ Is No Orson Welles Biography

Morgan Neville: ‘They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead’ Is No Orson Welles Biography
“There’s a fair amount of debate over which you should see first,” filmmaker Morgan Neville told the crowd at an International Documentary Association screening of his latest doc, “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead,” about the making of Orson Welles’ final, previously unfinished film.

The documentary and a completed version of Welles’ movie, “The Other Side of the Wind,” are both available to watch on Netflix, though Neville said, “they were not meant to come out together.”

The “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” director began working with the new producers of “Wind” four years ago, when they thought they were going to get the previously unseen footage (which had been locked in a vault for decades due to legal disputes) in just a few weeks. They would finish “Wind,” and Neville would make a documentary about the making of the film. But then those “few weeks” turned into years,

The Orson Also Rises: A Brief History of Rescuing ‘The Other Side of the Wind’

The Orson Also Rises: A Brief History of Rescuing ‘The Other Side of the Wind’
It begins with a death — a car accident that takes the life of a legendary director on his 70th birthday — and ends with a giant phallic symbol toppling over. In between those two moments, you get young film critics arguing, old actors kvetching, a Jim Morrison doppelganger, a naked woman wandering around an abandoned back lot, John Huston dispensing insults by a swimming pool, an orgy in a public bathroom, mannequins being used for target practice, empty drive-in theaters and the world’s greatest sex scene in a moving car.

The Orson Welles Film You Can See For the First Time Was His Most Personal Work

The Orson Welles Film You Can See For the First Time Was His Most Personal Work
Upon his death in 1985, Orson Welles left behind a handful of unfinished films that have become the stuff of legend among movie buffs, from his partially filmed adaptation of “Don Quixote” to his original edit of “The Magnificent Ambersons” before the studio recut it to pieces. But of all these projects, it was his postmodern magnum opus “The Other Side of the Wind” that Welles was most obsessed with completing. Perhaps the reason for this obsession was also the reason he wasn’t able to finish the film – or as many have conjectured, didn’t want to. “Wind”was by far Welles’ most personal work.

Now, using his extensive notes and some rough assemblies, a group of technicians and archivists, led by Peter Bogdanovich and Oscar-winning editor Bob Murawski (“The Hurt Locker”), have been able to piece together something akin to Welles’ original vision of “Wind,” now streaming on Netflix,

Composer Michel Legrand Sent Himself Back to ’70s to Work With Orson Welles on ‘Wind’

Composer Michel Legrand Sent Himself Back to ’70s to Work With Orson Welles on ‘Wind’
If a director and composer have success on their first film together, they typically work together again. But it is unprecedented for a composer to score that second project 40 years after the film is shot… and 30-plus years after the director’s death.

That’s what happened with French composer Michel Legrand, who — 44 years after completing the music for Orson Welles’ “F for Fake” — has now written the music for Welles’ long-awaited, finally completed 1970s film “The Other Side of the Wind,” which Netflix is releasing Friday.

“I loved Orson,” the composer, 86, tells Variety by phone from Paris. “I worked with him for almost a year on ‘F for Fake,’ and then he told me he was starting another one. I didn’t hear about that movie for 40 years.” Upon very, very belatedly getting the gig, “I asked myself constantly, ‘How would Orson have reacted?’ The very subject of the

Why ‘The Other Side of the Wind’ Is a New Way to See Orson Welles

Why ‘The Other Side of the Wind’ Is a New Way to See Orson Welles
The following essay was produced as part of the 2018 Nyff Critics Academy, a workshop for aspiring film critics that took place during the 56th edition of the New York Film Festival.

Orson Welles’ long-incomplete film “The Other Side of the Wind” has been a topic of fascination and intrigue for decades, billed as Welles’ final feature, and one that, like other projects before it (including “Moby Dick” and “Don Quixote”), had consistently been deemed unfinished. But after years of work from trusted collaborators following Welles’ death in 1985, “The Other Side of the Wind” is now complete, soon to be distributed on the streaming service platform Netflix, and has already made the festival rounds from Venice to Telluride to the recent New York Film Festival.

Beyond Welles acolytes, the film is also of interest because of its interwoven content and form, and a conceit that sees various cameramen following an older,

How Venice, Toronto and Telluride Festivals Stole Cannes’ Luster (Column)

How Venice, Toronto and Telluride Festivals Stole Cannes’ Luster (Column)
In all the years I’ve been attending film festivals, I have never seen a lineup that looked as good on paper as Venice’s did this fall, boasting new films by Alfonso Cuarón (“Roma”), Damien Chazelle (“First Man”), Paul Greengrass (“22 July”), Mike Leigh (“Peterloo”) and the Coen brothers (“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”) in competition, plus the world premiere of Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” and Orson Welles’ finally complete last film “The Other Side of the Wind.”

From there, the cream of the crop continued to Telluride (the elite Colorado-based fest where Oscar dreams are made) and then Toronto, the massive North American “festival of festivals,” which added even more anticipated world premieres from the likes of Barry Jenkins, Steve McQueen, Sebastián Lelio and Michael Moore. Technically, that made Toronto more impressive than Venice.

Meanwhile, somewhere in France, Cannes Film Festival topper Thierry Frémaux must have been asking himself,

Telluride Film Review: ‘They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead’

Telluride Film Review: ‘They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead’
It is perhaps the most famous movie never made. Orson Welles’ “The Other Side of the Wind” was intended to be his magnum opus, an ambitious meta-movie about a filmmaker’s last night on Earth, intercut with footage of his final project — a parody of an over-stylized 1970s atmospheric art film in the vein of Antonioni, et al. But Welles didn’t finish the movie, and now, Netflix has come to the rescue, ponying up to complete this missing piece of the master’s oeuvre — which is not quite the same thing as a “masterpiece,” alas, though that word will get used plenty.

A companion documentary about Welles’ particular obsession with this film, and the final decade or so of his career, “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead” is not a traditional making-of, nor is it an especially useful reference to how the movie came to be completed.

‘They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead’ Film Review: Morgan Neville’s Orson Welles Doc Is Cineaste Catnip
With his Vidal-Buckley documentary “Best of Enemies” and this year’s smash hit about Fred Rogers, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” filmmaker Morgan Neville has proven himself a keenly sensitive, artful showman when surveying a career through archival footage and fresh interviews. He knows how to re-light the flame of a life, and that’s quickly apparent in his deeply entertaining and illuminating Orson Welles documentary “They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead.”

With impish respect, it chronicles the tortuous journey of Welles’ most notoriously unfinished-in-his-lifetime last movie, “The Other Side of the Wind.”

For cinephiles, it’s a high-calorie, clip-and-interview-laden feast of biography, insight, and gossip. Add to that the bonus that — unlike the dashed promise felt after absorbing “Jorodorwsky’s Dune” that the cinema gods were robbed — in this case there’s a finally completed “Wind,” assembled in recent years, also going out through Netflix. to

‘The Other Side of the Wind’ Trailer: Netflix Unveils Orson Welles’ Final Movie and Debuts Mesmerizing First Footage

‘The Other Side of the Wind’ Trailer: Netflix Unveils Orson Welles’ Final Movie and Debuts Mesmerizing First Footage
Ahead of the world premiere of Orson Welles’ “The Other Side of the Wind” at the Venice Film Festival, Netflix has debuted the first trailer for the long-in-the-works Hollywood epic. Welles shot the movie between 1970 and 1976, but it’s taken 48 years to finish the film’s post production. Welles died before the movie was completed, but Netflix stepped in to complete the movie starting in 2017.

The Other Side of the Wind” stars legendary film director John Huston as J.J. “Jake” Hannaford, a grizzled director who returns to a changed Hollywood after spending years abroad in Europe. The filmmaker attempts to make a comeback in Hollywood, but the new landscape of the industry threatens his plans.

Netflix is world premiering “The Other Side of the Wind” at the Venice Film Festival on August 30. The movie will also screen at Nyff. “Wind” will debut on Netflix and in select theaters November 2. Watch the official trailer below.

Filmmakers and Producers Call Netflix’s Cannes Split ‘A Complete Shame’ — Exclusive

Cannes and Netflix could be a perfect match: the highest-profile film festival in the world and the film industry’s biggest disruptor, joining forces to sustain the future of the art form. For now, however, the two institutions are in a standoff that has no end in sight, leaving filmmakers and producers in a state of frustration.

After facing pressure from French exhibitors, Cannes added a rule in 2017 that required official competition entries to plan a French theatrical release. That’s a nonstarter for Netflix, since France mandates a three-year window before theatrical releases can be seen on streaming platforms. When Netflix and Cannes couldn’t come to terms, Netflix pulled all of its films.

The five titles included Alfonso Cuaron’s long-awaited return to Mexico with the 70mm “Roma” (which Cannes offered to play in competition if Netflix released the film in France) and the restoration of Orson Welles’ final feature,

Review: ABC's Dirty Dancing Remake: The Good, The Bad, and The Johnny

The original Dirty Dancing is a favorite movie to women of all ages. The magic of the film was created by the music, the spark between Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze, and of course, the dancing. It was a movie we watched when we were young, fantasizing about growing up and falling in love, and we watch it now that we're grown and remember our first loves and those magic summers of our youth. 

Remaking a movie so iconic is a big risk, so I watched this ABC remake with a grain of salt. I knew it wouldn't be the Dirty Dancing of my youth, but I wanted to see what it had to offer. Here's the lowdown. 

The cast: Abigail Breslin (Signs, Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland) as Baby Houseman was a perfect fit. She's cute and youthful. She played the naive and inexperienced, yet intelligent Baby really well.

Remaking ‘Dirty Dancing’: How the TV Movie Turned into Summer Camp for the Cast

It’s the perfect summer day in western North Carolina -- sunny, breezy and warm with blues skies reflecting against the lake and stretching for miles over rolling green meadows -- and entering the grounds of the country club, a giant “Kellerman’s Lodge” sign greets you from the golf course. Couples in starched, pastel outfits sit in rocking chairs on the porch waiting on cues from the director, while a dance coach run moves on the practice log that hovers twelve inches above the ground. The set of ABC’s highly anticipated Dirty Dancing musical reimagining -- starring Little Miss Sunshine’s Abigail Breslin as Baby and Colt Prattes as Johnny Castle -- is the fancy summer camp experience of your dreams and the cast has bonded tightly just like kids at the end of the season.

It’s understandable how close they’ve come -- besides being stuck in a remote mountain paradise for weeks
