12 Monkeys  SEP 02 1999

The 12 Monkeys DVD contains a very good "making of" featurette called "The Hamster Factor and Other Tales of Twelve Monkeys". Highlights: the movie tested *very* poorly at pre-opening screenings but did well at the box office, and I now understand why Hollywood makes so many crappy films. Films are micromanaged by the studios to such a high degree that there is almost no art left in them by the time they reach the theatres. Not to keep beating a dead horse, but if you want to see an artful film that made it through relatively unscathed, go see The Iron Giant.
