Doesn't do justice to the film.
28 February 2005
I really really loved "21 Grams" and found that this documentary didn't
do justice to the fabulous film. I found it a bit short and would have
liked to see more (especially considering how much it was padded out
with clips from the film). Also, the version on my DVD (and maybe all
versions, not sure) was tiny-screened and grainy, presumably as some
sort of artistic statement, however it became really annoying because
you couldn't see much.
The director makes some interesting points, mainly to do with the fact
that the film isn't in continuity, and there was a cool scene where he
explained a little ritual with roses that all cast and crew did at the
beginning and end of film. I would have liked to see more input in this
documentary from the cast and editor - more interviews with them would
have been fantastic. I would have also liked to see more
behind-the-scenes footage. I know they're hesitant to release it, but
it would have been great.
You should watch it if you like "21 Grams" but don't expect it to be
all that informing, entertaining or interesting.
