The best commentaries are when the participants are aware of the work they've done. Especially on dramatic films. On this track the director isn't affraid to poke fun at himself and the film, admitting early on that any lies he say's will be verified by his editor. Funny.

The two men are obviously close friends as evident from the familiarity between them. They joke and talk about all sorts of anecdotal material about the making of the film. Carnahan, in particular, is very entertaining as he gives most of his comments a spin of self-deprecating humour.

Completely agree on how refreshing the self-deprecating humor is. Carnahan is a good speaker, reflecting with not-so-subtle sensibilities on how he got financially screwed but had loyal actors that kept going. Itís cool to know where they shot which scenes, as they all look like they were shot in Detroit.

This is one of my favorite films of all time, and the commentary is both interesting and humorous(definitely contrasting the nature of the film). Joe Carnahan has later fallen short of the bar he set, with this kubrickian effort crime film. This is a don't miss film!
