Fantastic look and the behind the scene of the making of Dawn of the Dead (1978). I can't get enough Romero zombies. Classic documentary for any Romero fan.

Fascinating look behind the scenes of Romero's direction of the Dead series. Focused more on the earlier works (rightfully so), the film works best when it deep dives into what makes the films work and shows the painstaking process. The latter half (after Two Evil Eyes) kind of devolves into talking head interviews and brief glimpses of Romero on set but given how the latter films were; it was probably the best they could get. Still it holds your interest all the way through if you are a fan and makes you wish Romero had gotten more chances to expand and grow as a filmmaker.
