A film about reality
19 May 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the shortest of the three documentaries on the Special Edition 2-Disc DVD of Bullitt, and the only of them that isn't feature-length, with a running time of ten minutes. It consists of narration and interviews(with McQueen and Yates, among others) run over behind the scenes footage and clips of the movie. They talk about staying as close to the truth as they could; shooting exclusively on location(as opposed to using sets), using actual professionals(not actors) for some of the cast(those are nurses and doctors, and their performances are nearly simply them responding to what occurs... obviously, the operation is staged), and the driving is carefully planned, but not done as a series of minor gags, the way it had been until then. There aren't particularly any spoilers here, nothing you don't learn in the first half hour or so. It would have been nice to hear about other aspects; I suppose they didn't focus as much on the technical approach or the writing in these back then, and yes, this is arguably mainly promotional. That is not to say that it isn't interesting, and it is put together well. It keeps to a nice pace, not staying on any one subject for too excessive an amount of time. There is nothing offensive in this. I recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about the picture itself. 7/10
