Orson Welles' 'The Other Side of the Wind' ( ) has been finished and released but can not be rated. Should probably be fixed, unless there's some reason for it.

Usually, IMDb users are allowed to rate a film on or after the film's release date to the general public, which, in this case, appears to be on November 2nd (via the internet). The film has been screened at two film festivals (Venice and Telluride).

I'm not sure what the rules are for allowing user ratings after a film festival screening vs. a public release. Perhaps an IMDb representative will have a chance to respond to this inquiry.

Usually a festival release is sufficient for voting to be allowed, see any other film with a similar release pattern:

There must be a filter for lost or unfinished films. I have noticed other old titles with ratings disabled:

This does seem to be a bug in the system. The movie does list release dates that have already passed and it should be available for voting. Hopefully and employee will take a look at this.
