Special Report: Other Side of the Wind Redux

Special Guests: Bob Murawski, Joseph McBride, Josh Karp
Guest Co-Hosts: Ken Stanley, Rob St. Mary

On this special episode of The Projection Booth we're looking at Orson Welles's The Other Side of the Wind (2018) again. Way back in May 2015, four years ago, it was still something of a dream that this film would ever get completed and shown to the world. There were rumors but there had been rumors before.

Rob St. Mary and Ken Stanley join Mike to discuss finally seeing the forty-year-in-the-making film. Josh Karp (author of Orson Welles's Last Movie: The Making of The Other Side of the Wind and Joseph McBride (author of Whatever Happened to Orson Welles?) return to give their thoughts on the film while Michigan's own Bob Murawski discusses the incredible task of completing Welles's fragmented film.

Correction: Per Bob Murawski, the section with the mannequins was not done via CGI!
