This interestingly presented "making-of" for the Crusades film Kingdom of Heaven (2005) is organized so that the viewer can view the documentary however they like. Plenty of interviews are present, as well as an abundance of exclusive behind-the-scenes footage only available in this documentary. Written by
This is a set of documentaries, 9 or so total, about the three stages of production, on the 2-Disc DVD of Kingdom of Heaven. The setup allows you to view any single one of them when you want, divided into the groups of Directing, Crew and Cast, and the aforementioned phases. All added up, it has a running time of 84 minutes. It consists of interviews, behind-the-scenes footage during all of the parts of making the film and clips from the movie itself. It covers a lot of ground, and little about it should be unclear by the end of the hour and a half, if one chooses to watch all of this. Several of the main actors speak, as well as Ridley himself, and various people under him, responsible to different degrees for the many areas of creating the feature. They talk process, the freedom that Scott allows, and there is, of course, some of the obligatory love-fest. It's quite informative, thorough, and it can be entertaining, as well. I recommend it to any fan of those who helped to put the title together, and/or anyone who wants to know more about it. 7/10
