This documentary about one of the world’s most influential film editors offers a fascinating glimpse into the mysterious world of film editing.  If you have seen Road to Perdition with Tom Hanks and Paul Newman, or Romeo + Juliet with Leonard DiCaprio, or Moulin Rouge with Nicole Kidman, or A Cry in the Dark with Meryl Streep, you have experienced Bilcock’s work.
