Great for a film student to watch...

This short film can be found on the second disc to the feature film
"Monte Carlo". It's well worth seeing--particularly for film students,
though I do doubt that the average person would get as much out of it.
It examines the look and sound of "Monte Carlo"--in particular, the art
director Saul Bass' impact on the film. Some of the many odd
innovations he did was use multiplying images on the same screen,
montages and a DIFFERENT soundtrack and cinematic style for each race,
the use of strangely exaggerated sounds (such as heartbeats) all to
create the perfect effect. While I didn't love the multiple images, the
rest was great because you didn't consciously notice these subtle
changes--but they impacted the viewer nevertheless. Interesting and
