An interesting look into P. Jackson's budget film-making
24 July 2003 | by evilasahobbySee all my reviews

I saw this documentary about the making of "Bad Taste" shortly after seeing the film itself, so the link between the two was very strong. It shows Peter Jackson as a very committed, slightly egotistical and quite talented film-maker even at this stage of his career.

Given the limitations that surrounded "Bad Taste" - the lack of budget, the amateur cast and crew - it is amazing to see the product they produced and how the high-quality special effects were done. Most of the time is spent talking to Jackson and showing off his special effects work. Some time is spent on Jackson's early films, but they are more just a curiosity than anything that is of great import.

Of most interest is watching Jackson's parents talk about their son. They appear so white-bread boring that it's amazing to see them in connection with such a gross-out film!
