OK, this starts out with a lot of the typical stuff found on these Behind the Scenes featurettes, showing members of the cast & crew complimenting everyone else in the cast & crew. But this one does then follow through on explaining how this film was made, on what choices were made, on what the Director of Photography was thinking about and doing as he made this film, on what Director Garcia was doing (beyond simply being a giving & sharing director), on the production decisions made before the shooting was even started, why they shot where they did, why they used who they did, why they shot when they did, how they accomplished what they did, expanded upon for 22'.
Unlike with a lot of DVDs, this "making of" short was MORE fun to watch than the original film's commentary track.
Another off-subject element was "Analysis of the Plane Crash"--I saw that additional short as sort of amusing for how in depth and at length the special effects were explained and gone into, considering how small (having by then seen the whole film itself) a part they play in its plot. Which isn't to say it wasn't all interesting. I DID enjoy seeing the mechanics and decisions of the film-making process explained. I wish more films had featurettes this engaging stuck on their DVDs with them. (Whether or not they're listed as separate entities here on IMDb.)
