User Reviews

worth seeing
25 February 2001 | by AquapellaSee all my reviews

This series is currently airing monthly on Encore (cable movie network), and is worth viewing. Although the production value could be better, the interviews of both directors and actors are interesting.

The series goes behind the scenes of different movies and talks with each director about their careers behind the camera. Each hour long episode includes interviews with the actors and clips from the movies.

My favorites include Rob Reiner, James Cameron and Martin Scorsese.

Check it out!
