An Astounding Tale on the The Head, The Tail...
12 April 2006 | by (Jacksonville, Florida) – See all my reviews

Now that the documentary is finished and I've seen a complete version tapping out at 3 hours and 8 minutes long (Universal, you REALLY need to release a full 2-disc version of this), I must say it is the quickest paced documentary on any subject that I have ever seen. Much less, one on THE best film ever made and my personal favorite film of all time.

TSISW certainly tells some very intriguing production stories that haven't been told and of the ones that it goes over that have been told, there are new elements in these tried-and-true tales that make them worth hearing yet again. Everyone is familiar with the troubled production and the Great-White-Turd (Spielberg's term) that rarely worked and a cast and crew that practically went stir crazy to get even 30 seconds "in the can" every day.

But TSISW delves further still into this famed film that was the inaugural fire-starter of the "summer-blockbuster". I won't give away any of these never-heard or never-seen treasures, but there are surprises that can captivate even the most jaded Jaws fan. It did for me. I was literally in mouth-gaping awe of many of these stories, including "The Legacy" section of the documentary which touched on the tremendous fan-base, making me feel not so alone in my obsession of a truly brilliant film, with a stellar cast, a powerful score, a crafty script, an up & coming director and an all around power house movie.

So, to the TSISW producers and to "Jaws" (& all of those associated with it), I tip my hat to you for a truly incredible piece of work on an incredible piece of work.
