OK, we'll shoot it again, and in this angle, we'll have a comfortable actor with no head

This is the featurette on the DVD of Shadow of a Doubt. It consists of interview with cast(including several of the leads) and crew(well, some, anyway... and Peter Bogdanovich is, as usual, among the best to listen to in this) and clips of the film. They talk about how much of a storyteller Hitch(R.I.P.) was(and yes, we get a few examples of his sardonic wit... who else could the quote in the summary line possibly be attributed to?), the excellent camera-work, how this did not rely on star power, and how this was about bringing evil to innocent, small town America, introducing menace where before there was none, and about the growth of a young and, until then, relatively naive girl. The documentary of course spoils the movie. It is very well-cut, except for one bit of wonky audio editing(that they may not have been able to get around), and it is pretty interesting throughout. This comes to 34 minutes sans credits, and one extra with them. It keeps to a pretty nice pace. There is a bit of disturbing content, and a little violence in this. I recommend this to any fan of Alfred. 7/10
