Not sure how I feel about this.  I'd love to see a "new" Orson Welles movie, but will it really be considered HIS once it's done?  

To paraphrase:  "They were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

Welles said he wanted Peter Bogdanovich to complete it for him, so that's good enough for me. It'll be as close to his as Ambersons, The Stranger, Lady From Shanghai or any cut of Mr Akardin and Touch of Evil, but more sympathetically edited. Welles and Bogdanovich may even have had specific conversations about its eventual completion by Bogdanvich with the materials at hand. 

I wonder if the entire script was shot? Welles said he had something like 90% done, which I took to mean filming, not editing. I can't find the specific quote since the newest news has overwhelmed the google.

Don Quixote was a waste of time. And yet, count me in.

Tim, Netflix is on TV/streaming though.  Hence the reason I placed the thread in that forum since we talk Netflix there.

David Miller, I contributed to the Indiegogo to get the film completed.  I think they said there were two shots that they needed.  One of them was a plume of smoke rising up behind a drive-in movie theater.  It has been surmised they will build a model (and not do CGI) to get that shot.  (The Drive-In is long gone of course).  I really don't remember what the other shot was.  It was something super brief. (like an insert closeup).

Welles had completed about 40% of the editing.

It was interesting that Netflix is going to allow the producers to honor the perks from the indiegogo campaign.  I think that means I'll be getting a special limited edition Blu-Ray of the film.

Odd title. I can think of many things that would have "other sides," but the wind would not be one of them. The other side of the sea, the sky, the storm... midnight, tomorrow, forever...

Somehow, tho, not wind!

Hmm, I take your point as it is storms that have fronts. But, wind feels like it has sides - before the wind, the wind and then the wind has passed - that could, technically be viewed as the other side.

I guess.

It's a poetic title. I take it as meaning that the wind is no longer blowing in John Huston's (he plays the lead) direction. But, like everybody, I haven't seen it.
