A Flash in the Pan
2 August 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This short "Making of"/"Behind the Scenes" documentary begins with filmmaker Steven Spielberg welcoming "Leo" DiCaprio to "our family"; then, he and the crew drink some traditional champagne. Writer Frank W. Abagnale, subject of the film and autobiographical author of the adapted book, begins the story. Scripter Jeff Nathanson naturally takes over; and, the Walter F. Parkes production team takes us through the development of the "Catch Me If You Can" project. Mr. Spielberg describes the picture nicely as "slight of hand" and presides over a friendly, professional group. The director finds time, through designated documentary-maker Laurent Bouzereau, to credit the valuable work of designers Jeannine Oppewall and Mary Zophres.
