For a year, acclaimed British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay was embedded on the set of the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones," chronicling the creation of the show's most ambitious and complicated season. Debuting one week after the series finale, GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland. Made with unprecedented access, GAME OF THRONES: THE LAST WATCH is an up-close and personal portrait from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers. Much more than a "making of" documentary, this is a funny, heartbreaking story, told with wit and intimacy, about the bittersweet pleasures of what it means to create a world - and then have to say goodbye to it.

Stop getting mad at the creators and look and appreciate the hard work
27 May 2019 | by martinmatt-81974See all my reviews

This fantastic documentary shows the hard work and long hours it took to produce this show. They would be out at night with cold winds and covered in mud to make this for the world. These people really did amazing things. Everyone needs to stop scolding the creators and appreciate their work. This is an absolute work of art.

And also you can't be mad because you didn't like the ending. Yes you can be upset it was rushed, but not at the ending because you cannot get everything to go your way. Red wedding, Ned Stark's death, hodors death. You did not want any of those but you accepted it. Now Daenerys dies and you say writers destroyed it all. You get what you get and you don't throw a fit-weren't you taught that as a child?
