The history and methods of movie editing are documented in The Cutting Edge: The Magic Of Movie Editing, from the first film that used an editor, The Life Of An American Fireman to lessons on how to edit for different movie genres. Interviewees include Walter Murch, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Ridley Scott, James Cameron, and Chris Lebenzon, among others. (Danny Richelieu)
One of the better looking documentaries on the market, this anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD is comprised of nice looking interviews with filmmakers and clips from movies of all eras. Depending on the source element, there are certain artifacts. But the DVD is quite clean, with rare distractions in the way of smearing or pixelization. Enjoy the subject! (Suzanne Hodges)

Reason #74 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I'm a fairly avid home theatre enthusiast and like to keep up on all of the most recent development and progress relating to A/V equipment and digital media. Of all of the publications related to this topic, WSR is the most complete, most thorough, and has become the champion of enthusiasts, such as myself, in fighting for the best possible presentation of audio and video in consumer electronics and broadcast media. In addition to the very informative columns, I am very appreciative of WSR's equipment reviews and its commitment to providing a relatively honest opinion of each product. It's refreshing to see a review that does not conclude with: If you like red LED displays, don't mind just slightly bright and forward sounding gear, and absolutely have to have to have your equipment in a gold-tone color, you should go to your nearest XYZ dealer and give an audition. Itís reviews like this that leave me mystified as to why people even bother reading these other publications. I hope that WSR continues its excellent work.
