My immediate, ultra-rough impressions texted to a fellow cinephile upon coming to the end of the THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND:
"It's a trip. Hodgepodge metafiction, but also kind of his CONTEMPT or 8-1/2. Big, juicy lead role for John Huston as the Welles figure. Missed Cameron Crowe as "Party Guest," had to go back and spot him. Old-fashioned quasi-homophobia. Too much Bogdanovich mugging. Well worth a look and, surely, a future revisit."
