The Battle was a Ballet
28 December 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A home video special feature staple, for many films, is the "Behind the Scenes" or "Making of…" mini-documentary. These are routinely included as a "extra" reasons to buy the film in question, for home viewing; later, they tell you the movie you've just seen was brilliant. Unfortunately, most of these are non-illuminating, hasty promotional wastes of time. No so with Paul Seydor and Nick Redman's "The Wild Bunch: An Album in Montage".

DO NOT SKIP THIS ONE.

It's a great piece of film-making, on its own; beautifully editing original music cues, film clips, stills, new interviews, and re-produced statements. The centerpiece features revelatory behind-the-scenes footage of director Sam Peckinpah and his crew orchestrating William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Warren Oates, and Ben Johnson through "the battle of bloody porch," and others. This is an essential compendium to "The Wild Bunch".

********* The Wild Bunch: An Album in Montage (11/15/96) Paul Seydor ~ Nick Redman, Ed Harris, Sam Peckinpah, L.Q. Jones
