I guess I'm the first to review this, and let me just say Wow. I've always been a fan of Stephen Prince commentaries, but he really topped himself with this one. The analysis dives into characters, camera work, and the script and it's themes. It is nothing short of spectacular in terms of quality, and quantity. It's rare that a commentary completely changes a movie for me, but this one did. Give it a listen.
