"What makes a movie a movie is the editing," says Zach Staenberg, Academy Award winning editor of the Matrix trilogy. Close-ups, flashbacks, parallel action, slow motion, juxtaposition of images - these are just a few tools that make clips from Birth of a Nation to Pulp Fiction, Battleship Potemkin to Gladiator indelible.
Narrated by Kathy Bates and with interviews of a who's who of contemporary directors and editors, The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing is, shot for shot and frame after frame, reel magic.
