Bonus Episode: "The Other Side of the Wind"


The year 2018 provided a rare gift for film fans - a new film from Orson Welles!  A team of filmmakers and Netflix funders came together to take one of the his unfinished works and complete it for viewing on movie screens and streams.  The Director's Club was lucky enough to get a theatrical look, and in this episode we talk about the effectiveness of the result, the themes that emerge from the movie, how those themes fit with Welles' history and his other films, and how it's both of and way ahead of it's time!
