The Film Comment Podcast: Peter Bogdanovich
As a chronicler of film history, director Peter Bogdanovich has assembled what amounts to an insider’s oral history of classic Hollywood, across books and films and assorted individual interviews. His documentary on the silent great Buster Keaton, aptly titled The Great Buster, is yet another important project, which opened earlier this month. But Bogdanovich himself surfaces this month in another piece of film history—Orson Welles’s The Other Side of the Wind, one of cinema’s most anticipated unfinished works, which will be released on November 2 after an extensive reconstruction effort. For a special interview episode of The Film Comment Podcast, Nick Pinkerton sat down with Bogdanovich for a conversation about Keaton, Welles, and more.
