This documentary is to be found on The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension Special Edition DVD that was recently released and is definitely worth finding for fans of the film. Consisting of a interviews from the year of it's release, 1984, fans can see exactly how the cast felt about the film then and how the alien creatures and strange devices came to be. You can tell that even then the actors knew they were doing something that would become a cult classic.
Only really two complaints here. First off, I was hoping their would be more footage of the cast/crew from 1984 (as is there is only about 4 minutes worth), however there WERE interesting videos of the Lectroids mask designs by Tom Burman and the creation of the spaceship step by step. Also, the only person to come back in 2002 and speak is director W.D. Richter, though it should be a treat to the big fans of the movie.
Overall, this is a great little addition to a fully loaded DVD!! True fans of the movie should not be without this!!
