I’ve heard this commentary on a RC 2 disc from Germany. Medak’s main points are the angle of view, lenses, sets, building suspense and working with the late George C. Scott. Medak’s credo: less is more.

The producers don’t like the European style of the movie and hired a new editor: Lou Lombardo. He was Peckingpah’s editor. This topic is also mentioned.

There are no big gaps and Medak has always something interesting to say. The track is not very scene specific.

Good commentary: 8 out of 10.
