Takes away the glamour of movie making
11 January 2000 | by (tacoma, WA) – See all my reviews

This documentary does a good job of showing the true face of the movie industry. It takes away all of the glamour and ease that many of general public attach to movie making.

It is also put together exceptionally well. There are lots of shots that the existence of seems almost impossible.

For those interested in what the film industry is really like - this is a very insightful documentary.
