09.26.05DVD I have no clue why this is included on the Bullitt, there's about 15 seconds of Bullitt footage in it, but whatever...

This is to editing like Visions of Light is to cinematography. Of course, since editing is nowhere near as showy and much more abstract than photography, the doc has to do a bit more heavy lifting to show off what it's talking about, and some of the editors interviewed (by the way, they got a TON of interviews... really comprehensive) bear their invisible status with a bit of frustration, but for the most part it does a great job of explaining the process, discussing the history and innovations, and also giving flavor on a few specific films that we've all deemed "important."

It's available as its own DVD as well and certainly worth checking out for anyone interesting in editing or hearing cool movie people talking about films you love.
