Christopher Guest and his crew of equally talented and funny friends managed to create a particular standard for a genre of film, which is difficult to pull off if you don’t know what you’re doing. I myself come into editing with a documentary background, and as anyone who does documentary knows, in some situations it can be hard to keep continuity when events are unfolding in front of the camera before the operator has time to plan. This is where the "mockumentary" has its advantages (being able to consciously fill the holes) and disadvantages (filling those holes make it less of a documentary and more of a drama). To make it still have a raw documentary feel the editor needs to have a keen understanding of the subtleties that will fake it realistically.

As an interesting note, it was conveniently blocked by FOX just as the internet is on blackout strike today in solidarity against SOPA. American friends, please be aware that if SOPA passes, videos like this where I attempt to teach about film editing in a fun way will not be available anymore, even if I am in compliance with the Fair Use clause— in fact, I could be shut down, fined, and/or jailed without due process. If you like the internet and the ability to find information freely and easily, please educate yourself about this bill, and do whatever you can to stop it from passing!

Metropolis is one of the most influential science fiction films of all time, and it's obvious that the editing has a lot to do with it. The expressive nature of the acting is superbly juxtaposed with epically framed shots in such a way that story isn't only easy to follow, but really fun to watch!
