The director of the best film ever made leaves behind an unfinished movie destined never to be seen – until now.Five decades after its conception, after years of financial and legal wrangling, the film has been completed, a gift to movie buffs who will probably spend the next 50 years decoding it. The Hollywood Reporter has called "The Other Side of the Wind" "the Holy Grail for zealous film buffs, the long-awaited bookend for 'Citizen Kane'." Itself the story of an unfinished film left behind by a great director and reconstructed after his death, Welles' work is art imitating life imitating art.That film-within-a-film is self-consciously arty, with plenty of female nudity, reminiscent of late '60s films like Michelangelo Antonioni's "Blow Up" or some of Jean-Luc Godard's films of the time.
