this is not an easy dvd to understand, yet it shows brilliance, here and there. the second disc offers more than the film itself: there is a retrospective of the director's career; he explains the process for deciding which cut of his last film, to use: two cuts were shown in two theatres. audiences were tabulated, and the winner became the cut that was released. for those fans of bruce willis, it was COLOR OF NIGHT, and was disrespected by many critics. In contrast, THE STUNT MAN, was nominated for three Oscars, film, director, screenplay, and achieved nearly cult status, at first. The second disc has an interview with Steve Railsback, and Alex Rocco, who were supporting cast members. They seem quite chummy. Richard Rush fleshes out the history of the Haight Ashbury, whilst telling of the making of a couple of films he did there in the 60s. He seems to have had more clout with the studios than just about any director I have seen/heard talking about their career. P.S.: to those Christianly inclined, there is some devil imagery, and the Hells Angels are in those two films from the 60s previously mentioned.

Good fun in this older, but enduring, self-spoofing Movie Making farce.
