unimaginative but useful

Martin Scorsese (director), Wesley Strick (screenwriter), Robert DeNiro, Barbara DeFina (producer), Henry Bumstead (production designer), Thelma Schoonmaker (editor), David Williams (optical photography), Bill Taylor (special optical effects), Elmer Bernstein (composer), Gregory Peck, Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange, & Juliette Lewis talking individually at different lengths from 1991-2001 about their parts in making the 1991 remake of Cafe Fear. Not so much a documentary as a collection of interviews but the more interesting parts DO take you behind the scenes, go a bit into the WHYs of some of the filmmaking decisions, explain a little bit of how a film is constructed, share some anecdotes.

It does seem rather long for one of these "Making of" videos but that's not a bad thing. You simply have to particularly enjoy watching people talking for over an hour about making Cape Fear. I'm thankful that they do make these things to tack onto the films' DVD issues.
