Quotes

[talking about Hans Zimmer]
Ridley Scott: The great thing about working with Hans is nothing's sacred. You can discuss anything and Hans discusses anything. Hans will actually criticize something or criticize a scene. So I'll say, you know, "Well, fuck you. I didn't like your music either."

True "Making of" documentary!
2 August 2004 | by rickybo140See all my reviews

i recently rented the "matchstick men" DVD and immediately went out and bought my own copy the next day after watching the documentary on the making of the film (tricks of the trade)which is included in the bonus features

it is a full length documentary that goes into extreme detail from pre-production meetings to the release movie fans like me foam at the mouth for DVD extras like this one, OK maybe not so extreme but i definitely act like a giddy little school girl just thinking about it

if you want to check out the long process and hard work it takes to make a quality film then this is for you

oh yeah, if you like it as much as i do, then check out the extras on the "once upon a time in Mexico" DVD which were done by the same DVD producer

-after watching this doc., you will appreciate this movie and the film-making process in general so much more
