Film-maker Martin Scorsese looks back over the impact of The Statue of Liberty on the twentieth century, her evolution and what she meant to people of the past and what she continues to mean after September eleventh, 2001.
This comes highly recommended by me if you liked "The Last Temptation Of Christ" and want to see a little of what it was like to work on the movie. I'm guessing this is a very honest representation.
Even if you firmly disagree with what "Temptation" is trying to say about Jesus and the duality of his divinity and humanity, but are willing to appreciate it as a technically well made motion picture, I would advise you to at least rent the Criterion DVD of the movie to see "Location Production Footage".
Martin Scorsese carries around a VHS camera and records glimpses of working on location to get "Temptation" completed. He beats the sun and stretches his budget.
