Pretty decent commentary by the master director Mr Weir. Its pretty low key though. Worth it for fans of the film.

This commentary is naturally diminished by its multi-speaker, separately recorded set up; but given how interesting and pleasant to listen to Weir is - even if he relies mostly on digressions, which I don't like very much - and how clear and candid Seale is about the craft of cinematographer in this commentary for (in my opinion, of course) a lesser movie by the director, it makes me wonder how great two individual commentaries by them for Witness would be. Screenwriter Schulman says some interesting things, but seems too confused and never quite insightful.
