Storyline

We open with stories of one man's brilliant idea to remake the science fiction classic, _Fly, The (1958)_, into a whole new entity. The end result was David Cronenberg's _Fly, The (1986)_ that revolutionized the genre. Nearly every aspect of the filmmaking process is covered in this mammoth documentary, and in great detail. Sadly, the only thing missing here are some new interviews with Cronenberg himself. Written by Rhyl Donnelly

Excellent, thorough documentary except for the missing director
28 June 2006 | by (St. Louis, Missouri) – See all my reviews

This 2+ hour documentary produced for the 2-disc edition of The Fly is the kind of comprehensive in-depth documentary that fans of any film hope for. The obvious and quite glaring problem is that David Cronenberg does not appear in it at all except for archival behind-the-scenes footage. I'm sure there was some reason for why he is not featured such as scheduling conflicts but unless he refused to appear (like David Fincher in the Alien 3 documentary, or David Lynch who just doesn't like to talk about most of his films) I cannot imagine why the producers of the documentary and the DVD would not find a way to include Cronenberg somehow. Whether it would mean waiting to make the documentary or waiting to release the DVD so that Cronenberg could have been interviewed for his segments after the rest of the participants. That said this is otherwise a great look into, and back, by the cast and other participants all the way from the idea to remake The Fly to screenings following its completion. This would receive a vote of 9-10 from me if Cronenberg had been involved.
