They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead Netflix – Review

They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead is an essential documentary to understand who Orson Welles was, his importance to the cinema and why his last film, which he left unfinished, is so essential for modern cinema (watch here).

As we all know, Netflix has bought the rights to this feature that he did not finish, called “The Other Side of the Wind”, and it finished it – and considering the world critics acclaim that the work has been receiving, it is sensational that we can now understand how was the odyssey that the director had to face in order to be able to film it.

The joining of all the parts was in charge of Morgan Neville, who had already demonstrated his huge talent for documentaries with “Twenty Feet From Stardom”, a feature that won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2013. Here he interviews the remaining of the production of “The Other Side of the Wind” and retrieves interviews of Welles for the American TV, where he talks a bit about the work he was developing, but that never had its conclusion. It therefore becomes an unmissable work to understand the master’s mind.

One of the biggest

Orson Welles is considered one of the greatest film directors of all time. And if he were to watch his actual output, he made few films as a director. But all those who bear their mark are unmistakable, both for the brave stories for the time and for the direction that exhaustively sought new forms of cinematic language. His films today are considered classics par excellence, precisely because of his quest for innovation.

In producing “The Other Side of the Wind”, Welles wanted to make his film definitive. It was he who practically invented the genre of “alternative films” by always looking for ways to make his movies without depending on the Hollywood scheme he so detested for its lack of freedom. With his latest work, he wanted to leave a legacy: a narrative that would blend all genres into a single feature, ranging from documentary to drama, from comedy to suspense without rising from the chair. In They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead we can see his determination to film his way, keeping his vision even when the funding disappears and he needs to shell out money from his own pocket to pay for filming. For Welles, creative freedom was the most important thing.

This is clear from the interviews that make up this documentary, from people who worked with Welles on the development of “The Other Side of the Wind”. All of them are unanimous in saying that the man was genial, but at the same time he was extremely stubborn in wanting to impose his method of work, which completely escaped the way movies were made in the 1970s. Besides that, images of Welles’ interviews are recovered, where we can understand a bit more about his way of seeing movies and how he saw the movie itself, which has never been shown in theaters until now.

Real cinema

They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead tells a bit about Welles’s life and death. His demise in 1985 prevented the movie from having a final form, but as he described in interviews, he wanted to see it finalized. For that, he left instructions that were followed now, in 2018, that finally brought the movie into daylight. What we can realize, however, is that no more directors like Welles are made: with him, we have the real cinema, without the moorings of a known scheme. It is pure creativity.

So, They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead is a must for all moviegoers and people who like to see how this art can change lives, as well as telling a little bit about this forgotten genius that was Welles. Incidentally, the title of this documentary could not be more pertinent: in one of his last TV interviews, he said that he would only be loved when he died. After more than 30 years since his death, he has once again proved visionary.
