An interesting, competently assembled behind-the-scenes feature which told me everything I needed to know about what went on before and during the shooting of that big-screen film in Bedford-Stuyvesant. How they made use of community locals. How they kept them off crack for a couple months. How Danny Aiello looked at things differently than me. How the film crew fit nicely into the neighborhood, with some snippets of those who did not see everything working out perfectly, just to round out the story. How they fitted their film site into that block of Bed-Stuy. What happens when you shoot a fire on a street. The part Melvin van Peebles played in things. The fun of converting 8 weeks to one day. I enjoyed this film of St. Claire Bourne's to that of Spike Lee's.
