The Other Side of the Wind ★★★

Extremely into the overall structure, pace of montage, and so many individual elements of this, but I'm not sure it works on a scene-by-scene basis. I keep going back to rewatch bits I remember fondly, only to discover that the actual viewing experience is a slog. Sometimes the line readings totally throw me off ("what DOES ab-JURE mean?"), or the ADR's too distracting.

Although Legrand's score is superb in Kodar’s sections, it often seems like distracting noise on top of the already fragmented narrative, and sometimes undercuts the dramatic tension of key scenes. I'd love to see a version of this with solely diegetic music.
