This 59 minute documentary on the making of "Heat" can be found on the second disc of the 2-DVD special edition of the aforementioned movie. Separated into 3 parts, the first part goes into the origin of the story in the film (which is simply fascinating), the second part, running 20 minutes, goes mostly into the characters of the film and the intricacies (this part into nearly as interesting as the first, but still watchable). The third and final part, running 24 minutes goes into the researching,preparation, and gun training for the film (better than the second segment, yet still not as good as the first). all in all a pretty solid documentary.
