A Beautiful Tribute

I LOVE 'Making Aoes'!!!

As an fan of 'Planet of the Apes' since childhood, I thought I knew everything there was to know about the film. Man was I enlightened.

On the surface, 'Making Apes' is a straightforward Doc on the groundbreaking makeup behind one if the most important films in the History of Cinema.

But as the layers unfold, it becomes a Love Letter to the Makeup Artists, the pioneers who changed moviemaking forever.

Thank You for giving 'Planet of the Apes' fans, and movie lovers in general, this intimate peek into the lives of the men and women behind the iconic film.

While anyone who is a Planet of the Apes fan (the original five) has seen documentaries on the films and their making, this is the first one that highlights the makeup artists without whom, an "A" class science fiction movie that changed the film world and science fiction films themselves, this would have been a forgotten "B" film and Twentieth Century Fox might have gone under (rather than been sold to Disney, something I could have done without) in 1967. This talks to the people who worked with the brilliant, mercurial John Chambers and those his and his teams work influenced. An excellent documentary.

A film all film fans will enjoy.

This is a rare glimpse into what has been the most secretive aspect of filmmaking for years. And the folks who are interviewed are the ones who have known the secrets for over half a century. This is fun to watch if ya wanna peek into the makeup trailer! You don't have to be a Planet of the Apes fan to enjoy this. But it helps! And who knows? After watching this you might become one!
