I saw this on a DVD of "The Kid", although it didn't really relate to "The Kid" especially, at least, it didn't seem to be about "The Kid" more than about any other films of Jon Turteltaub. As the title suggests, "Conversations with Jon Turteltaub" is about director Jon Turteltaub and related information, such as his approach to directing, making films, working with actors, all that sort of stuff. We see brief clips of Jon directing and hear testimonials from those he has worked with mainly actors about how great he is (as though they would say they didn't like him, even if they didn't!). Jon talks a lot, as you can guess from the title, and discusses his job. It was a little boring and although some good points about directing were made, I feel it dragged on a bit and became a little self-indulgent after a while.
