somewhat interesting documentary
15 February 2002 | by dcilliSee all my reviews

This doc appears in the bonus materials section of the Birds DVD and provides quite a bit of insite into the making of the birds. The special effects for the day were cutting edge and it was interesting to note the relationships between the actors, the director and the birds. If you are a fan of the master, take an hour or so to view this.
