    Thanks Jess, I'll look at the clip after work - sounds great.

    As for Shepherd, I saw it last night and honestly loved it while being engrossed from start to finish.

    Usually when I watch a Matt film after following the production for months, I'm mostly distracted looking at the details (set locations, remembering on set paparazzi and blog reports, minor things), but this time, while noticing everything else, I was not distracted from the quality of the film.

    I didn't notice the length and was very impressed with the level of detail, the music, the performances, the design etc. I thought Matt was great, and showed a lot of nuance while staying completely true to the character and film. I loved how the film had a very complex beginning and challenged everybody from the start - it certainly was never boring or one-note.

    As a film it was many times more rewarding than The Departed, for me, and I just wish it had enjoyed more recognition and respect. I hope people come to appreciate it on DVD as a great achievement by all involved.

    Oh i am so glad you loved it!

    i feel the same way, it was excellent and I agree with you that it deserves more recognition and respect. i cant wait to buy it in march. i hope there is a commentary with matt.

    I just bought the departed 2-disk SE a couple hours ago and i cant wait to see the special features and to see the film again.

    As I reported earlier, the only extras on the Good Shepherd disc are 16 minutes of deleted scenes.

    There was lots of behind the scenes filming, supposedly for the DVD, but it seems not to be included (such as lengthy interviews with the woman who taught Matt and Eddie the ship in a bottle techniques etc). Not sure if these 'making-of' scenes made it to other behind the scenes shows.

    Felicity, I agree totally that the film was so much more rewarding that TD. It was a film, when announced, that I was convinced I wouldn't care for. I was obviously prepared to see it anyway because Matt was in it, but had no interest whatsoever in the beginnings of the CIA.

    What a PLEASANT surprise I had. Matt was brilliant, absolutely brilliant. The film was intriguing and well written. Wilson's character was a very complex role in spite of the "underacting" required of it. 6 weeks since I've seen it and I still gush over it.
