This 30 minute interview between Ridley Scott and director Kevin Reynolds, is an interesting insight into the making of Scott's first feature film The Duellists. Though sometimes, Mr Reynolds does appear to be grovelling at the feet of the genius that is Ridley, it still manages to avoid being a kiss-ass-fest, and lets us know the trials and tribulations he had getting the film financed and off the ground. It's all too easy to forget, that Ridley Scott was not such a hot property during the mid '70s as he later became and still is. Scott mentions on the DVD commentary how thirty of his crew had to move a heavy carriage from one hill to another, because they didn't have enough fake snow to fill up a certain shot. The film went on to win a prize at the Cannes Film Festival (Not the Palm D'or), despite Scott being asked to drop out of the competition by a nervous opponent.

This is certainly a great addition to a cool DVD. If only they were all laden with features like this.
