VERY informative, yet diminishes the film somewhat
16 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

This documentary which is just 9 and a half minutes shy of an hour and a half is available on side B of MGM's DVD of "the Day the Earth Stood Still", it discusses pretty much everything you'd want to know about the film. It kinda takes away from the subtlety of the film itself and spells out what the movie was all about. And watching it made me not like the film as much because of it. So in that aspect this documentary pretty much failed. Never underestimate the power of ambivalence. But I digress, the documentary also goes into adapting the short story, the fights over casting, the props, and more.

My Grade: B-
