The DVD contains a selection of Ratner's best music videos (but unfortunatley not all of them), amongst them

Mariah Carey - Heartbreaker
Mariah Carey - I Still Believe
Mariah Carey - We Belong Together
Mariah Carey - Touch My Body

D'Angelo - Brown Sugar
D'Angelo - Cruisin'
D'Angelo - Lady (Remix)

Madonna - Beautiful Stranger

Dru Hill - How Deep Is Your Love

& also a couple of really rare & high quality Hip Hop videos by LL Cool J,Redman,Public Enemy,Wu-Tang Clan,Heavy D. Especially getting them was one of my main reasons why I definitely had to cop the DVD.

The DVD also features some of his NYU films, commentaries by several artists, commercials and a 30 min. video about his story.

And you will also get a nice 32 page Booklet with background informations and a lot of photographies.

Résumé: I know the space on a dvd is limited, but nonetheless I would have really appreciated it, if there would have been all of Ratner's shooted music videos (The selection could have been continued on a second disc e.g.). I am especially missing Positive K's Carhoppers or Ill'Al Skratch's I'll Take Her and a few others.

I also have to agree, that the cover is misleading and maybe one of the reasons why the dvd's (Volume 2 as well) haven't sold that often (The DVD's are also hard to find and I would never have known about their existence (probably) if a friend of mine wouldn't have recommended them to me).

It's all in all a great product (nonetheless) and I really hope they (Genius Entertainment) are going to continue this directors series - at least for Volume 3 with the Hughes Brothers (as planned).

P.S. You should also check out Volume 2 with and about F. Gary Gray.

His Hollywood films have grossed over a billion dollars. He's friends with some of the most powerful men in Hollywood. He's dated some of the most beautiful women on the planet. Yet somehow I get the sense that director Brett Ratner would trade it all for a little bit of respect. This single disc compilation of Music Videos, TV ads and student work does a pretty thorough job of charting the trajectory of his phenomenal career (the half hour featurette even starts off with a clip from Brett's bar mitvah). As Diddy mentions in the doc, Ratner is by far the most successful filmmaker to come out of the world of hip hop videos. In some ways, he's like Spielberg (coincidentally his first benefactor)--early in his career, he never got his props as an artist because of his commercial success. But unlike Speilberg, he has yet to attach himself to a story of his own creation. With this DVD, Ratner gives himself his just due (the Shooter Series is financed and marketed by Rat himself). While I would argue Hype Williams, Jim Swaffield and Charles Stone III are responsible for the most groundbreaking and memorable early hip-hop videos of all time, Ratner was right there in the mix, as Russell Simmon's go-to guy for much of the early '90s and later as Mariah Carey's trusted collaborator on half a dozen mini-movies. While I would never recommend this DVD to the casual viewer (Ratner's clios were designed to sell records, not stand as lasting art) this would be of major interest to film students would be the audio commentaries. Ratner is famous for saying he didn't want to direct a feature film until he had made 100 videos. The commentaries on the music clips reveal his method of deliberate practice--how he incorporated match cuts, framing and dialogue to make his videos feel more like movies.Read more ›

Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD assuming it was a collection of Mariah Carey music videos / interviews / clips etc.
However, Mariah is only a very tiny piece of this DVD. It is really a collection of Brett Ratner's work. (I assume he is a director?) I ended up returning it.
If you are purchasing this expecting it to be a Mariah DVD, you will be disappointed.
