This 69 minute documentary on the making of "the Italian Job" can be found on the Special Collecter's Edition of the aforementioned movie. It's split in 3 parts or you can watch them in a 'play all' option. The first part "The Great Idea" focuses on the fruition of the story for the movie, the second "The Self-Preservation Society" deals with the supporting cast, and the last segment "Get a Bloomin' move on" focusing on the cars and music. All these segments feature informative interviews and learning more about the already great movie, made me appreciated the film all the more. Easily among the best documentaries that I've seen. And while it's certainly not in the top echelon ("Full Tilt Boogie", "Apocalypse Soon", "Heart of Darkness", Etcatra) It's still worthwhile viewing.

My Grade: B
