Orson Welles' long-lost The Other Side of the Wind - reconstructed and slated to be released by Netflix - has been pulled from the Cannes Film Festival along with several major new films due to Cannes' ongoing nasty feud with Netflix.  Beatrice Welles, Welles' oft-litigious daughter who fought the Wind restoration team for years, sent a letter to Netflix pleading for them to reconsider.


I support Netflix boycotting Cannes until it agrees to give their films award consideration - there are some excellent ones, including Dee Rees' Mudbound (an Oscar contender this past year) and Bong Joon-ho's Okja. But with The Other Side of the Wind I'd make an exception. It was Orson Welles' final work and I believe it deserves to be first screened at Cannes. I certainly will be making an effort to see it theatrically assuming it screens locally.
