Shawshank: The Redeeming Feature (2001)

*** (out of 4)

Nice documentary that takes a look at THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION and it's growing cult of fans. Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, Frank Darabont and many other cast members are on hand for interviews. Much like HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL, this documentary can be found on the film's 2-disc Special Edition. Both films share a lot of the same stories as the cast members are pretty much talking about things that we've heard countless times before. This includes discussions about the casting, the bombing at the box office, the eventual rise in popularity and of course the spiritual side of the film. All of these stories are good but you hear them so many times it's good that the documentary went into a different direction towards the end. Some of the new stuff we get to see is a look at the prison today. The film was shot in Mansfield, Ohio so host Mark Kermode takes us back to the city and talks with the locals. We get to see some of the footage shot at the town premier of the movie. We also get to talk with a church who sees the movie as a very religious story including the idea that Andy was Jesus Christ. Overall this is a pretty interesting look but I think some of the cast comments could have been edited down. I mean, if you've seen the other documentaries on the making of the movie then you're already going to know the story. Another aspect touched on here is the way fans at IMDb and other places has voted this one of the greatest movies of all time. Hearing a fan reaction probably would have been more interesting that some of the cast comments. With that said, there's no doubt fans of the film will want to check this out and especially if they want everything they can get from the film.
