   there's also a documentary about the making of landreth's "ryan". it
may even be better than "ryan" in some ways. if i remember correctly it
covers some things not discussed or left out of "ryan". it also shows
the reaction ryan larkin had to being shown "ryan" for the first time. i
forget the title and the name of the filmmakers who made it(i saw it at
the golden horse film festival last year as part of a program of
larkin's animated shorts), but i can probably dig that info up if you
need it.
