The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing

2004 NR

While actors and directors certainly are instrumental in making a movie memorable and weaving story lines together, it's the film editor who strings the scenes into a seamless, artistic whole. This fascinating movie, narrated by Academy Award winner Kathy Bates, unmasks the mystery of film editing with the help of such fine examples of the art form as Birth of a Nation, The Battleship Potemkin and Bullitt.
