The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing is a comprehensive documentary about the history, technique, and art of film editing. While the names of the actors and directors of a good film are readily advertised, one crew member with an extraordinary effect on the quality of the final product is the film editor. Employing even the most basic techniques, the editor can lengthen, shorten, intensify, or even change the entire meaning of a scene. In this fully loaded documentary, narrated by Kathy Bates, director Wendy Apple scours the film universe from the early days to the most groundbreaking features, highlighting the particularly magical craft of film editing. Apple juxtaposes contrasting films like The Great Train Robbery to The Matrix, showing the continued prominence of techniques developed over 100 years ago. Sitting down with professionals, viewers are treated to a workshop in cutting up a scene, and special insider tricks, like the removing of frames from Terminator 2. Interviews with notable directors, editors, and more provide perspective on just how important editing is and how much it has grown in this far reaching film. Movie fans and movie makers agree that The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing is an informative experience that is worth a look.moreless
