| A Movie about Directing and Editing with Terrible Directing and Editing
This series presents some interesting information, but in the most disjointed and confusing way possible. There were some very strange decisions made on the part of the editor and producer of these pieces.

To begin, all of the interviews are presented as a 4:3 box within a blurred vignette. I have no idea why they felt this was necessary, maybe the footage was not up to spec? In addition to the strange framing, there is a musical backtracking accompanying every interview. The music is very odd, for the Rob Reiner interview the backtracking was some type of Bollywood soundtrack, I have no idea why they went that direction. There are so many confusing choices as far as editing and design goes, this piece looks like a poorly made student project. Even the interstitial slides were poorly produced motion graphics pieces. Overall the interviews were good, but the presentation makes this very difficult to watch.

The fact that this show was on for 5 consecutive seasons is very surprising. For a show about the greatest directors, this was very poorly presented.
