| Much more than a 'making of' film.
Despite being a DVD extra, this is not just some 'making of' featurette. Instead of talk about the film and the back story, this film is much more specific and focused. Many directors, producers and cinematographers discuss the many ways that "Ben Hur" was a groundbreaking film. As they describe the brilliant camera angles, costumes, the use of light, closeups and the 65mm print, you see what they are talking about on the screen. As a result, the film is more a primer for young film makers on how to make a profound film--and it has the added benefit of enabling the casual viewer to get so much more out of the production. Some might find this a bit dull, but for insane cinemaniacs (like me), it's all great because it's so educational. Plus, it helps me appreciate a movie that I already love--giving me so many more reasons to respect and love the movie. It's like sitting in on a film class--just soak it all in and enjoy.
