A very good look at making a classic, 29 May 2001
Author: djf989

This is a very indepth look at the making of the movie. Its a little too long but that is fine. It makes up the fact that there is no commentary for the dvd but this will do. This is a must see for anybody who loves to know what it takes to make a movie.
