    The Other Side of the Wind

    ★★★★★

    Orson Welles' shadow looms over movie history larger than perhaps any other figure. Welles was the wunderkind of Hollywood, who (reportedly) peaked with Citizen Kane at 25 and became a reclusive, mysterious enigma of a man.

The film marks Allen’s first collaboration with Scarlett Johansson only two years after her breakout role in Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation.
