Seeing and Believing 175: Orson Welles’s The Other Side of the Wind and Lasse Halstrom/Joe Johnston’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
Christmas came early this year for both cinephiles and blockbuster audiences! It's not every year that we get a new Orson Welles film, but Netflix brought us one this year in the form of the long-dormant The Other Side of the Wind. Wade and Kevin bring fellow critic Ryan Holt on the show to discuss whether this late addition to Welles's filmography is a worthwhile one. Then the guys turn their attention to Disney's latest attempt at cinematic magic, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. How well does this film adaptation of the story behind the much-beloved ballet succeed at crafting a brand-new adventure?
