"Select Theaters" on Nov. 2 (or on Netflix). I'm guessing there will be NYC and LA showings. Anywhere else?

Outside of theatrical exhibitions, the best the film has ever looked: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film5/blu-ray_reviews_70/the_magnificent_ambersons_blu-ray.htm

Really excited to rewatch Criterion's version of this. I've only seen it once, many many years ago, on VHS. I may buy a nice Criterion-Welles Bundle with Othello, F For Fake, Chimes at Midnight, and Immortal Story....good use of B&N Sale in November.

The Other Side Of The Wind

First Impressions

W*T*F*?, Cool, John Huston, some Film Noir actors Edmund O'Brien, Paul Stewart, Mercedes McCambridge, Cameron Mitchell, nekkid women, Ojar Kodar, home movies, W*T*F*?, improvisation, experimental, flowing into semi-documentary, reminissings by family members, Gary Graver cinematographer, assessment of Welles work, an insight into how he worked and his creative style, his eternal problems with creative control and financing, it's all in the editing, his loss of the footage from The Other Side Of The Wind from repercussions from the Iranian Revolution, Welles having to resort to acting in various projects for money, Welles mooching off Peter Bogdanovich for two years, his last interviews, his biggest curse was the success of Citizen Kane at 25 years old. Like one big free for all fun wild party celebrating Welles.

Interesting enough that I'd watch it again.

I thought it was a very interesting art film, and an amazing watch as a big-to-huge Welles fan, but it's also very challenging and oftentimes not comprehensible. There might be more cuts in this than any other movie. By the end, I was exhausted. Part of me wants to watch again for a better understanding, but another part of me would rather just rewatch the tamer but somewhat similar F For Fake.
