12.21.06Netflix A 2-hour doc about the making of Street Trash. OK, first off... I'm not sure a 2 hour movie needs an intermission. Or let's put it this way... if you feel your 2 hour movie needs an intermission, it may have some pacing troubles. It's all good though... you're pretty much only gonna watch this movie if you want to know more about Street Trash (it's the second disc of the special edition) and if that's the case, a long-winded extra-thorough doc on the subject is not a problem.

Except Frumkes manages to interview everybody even remotely involved in the movie except the director. I guess he's too busy steadicam operating or too rich to care about his first movie or something, but considering they got Bryan Singer to sit down and talk, Muro's absence is pretty weird.

And in 2 hours, it's never mentioned that this was based on a Kurosawa movie. That officially makes Kier-La's horror trivia game too hard.

So since I had to miss this at Fantastic Fest this year, I'm glad to be able to rent it and see all the goofy fun that went into this goofy fun movie.
