As entertaining as documentaries about movies can get.
16 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, so yeah, it's not out yet. I've been privileged to watch about 45 minutes of it, being a friend of the producers. I had actually never seen Jaws when I watched this footage. (my parents were very protective of me growing up...) TSISW made me want to see Jaws, so I did, and loved it! I guess that's as good an endorsement as you can give.

Even though I don't consider myself a Jaws fanatic, or even expect to see Jaws again for good while (I'll show it to my kids when they're older...), I'd recommend this documentary to anyone. It's super entertaining. I had no idea what a subconscious impact Jaws has had on the world. Now I see Jaws references in everything.

The segment about the soundtrack was my favorite. It truly is the most recognizable two notes ever played.

If you are a Stephen Spielberg fan, you must own this. You don't often get to hear him speak so intimately about his work, and especially not about Jaws. I know for a fact that the interview was quite long. I wonder if the DVD will have a lot more of it in the extra features...

Anyway, this is a fabulous documentary, and I look forward to seeing the whole thing...whenever it comes out. :)
