Superior to your average featurette, 6 September 2009
Author: Grann-Bach ( from Denmark

This is a documentary on the "making of" of Twelve Monkeys, found on the Collector's Edition DVD. It consists of interviews, behind the scenes footage, clips of the movie and a little bit of marvelous, Gilliam-esquire animation(!). Coming in at almost 90 minutes, this is thorough, going over every aspect of the process of putting the film together, as of Terry joining the production, thus, the script-writing isn't dealt with much. You get a lot of insight into how he approaches the craft, the issues that arise with him in the director's chair(him being something of an uncompromising perfectionist), and how he manages to inject such a massive amount of surrealism and food for thought into one single motion picture. This also goes into the marketing, the preview screenings, and the casting of Willis and Pitt. It's all well-edited, sharp and not wasting any time. Well-paced, as well, you're never bored during this. It's pretty funny, too, maybe especially if you're into the ex-Python, and if you're considering watching this, chances are that you are a fan. There is strong language in this, if not in copious amounts. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about the subject. 8/10
