This isnít the best track out there. It starts out serious, and thatís not the best sign. He talks about some of the actors a little throughout the track. Throughout most the track, he does what I donít like people to do Ė he basically narrates whatís happening on screen. Granted, he tries to elaborate and explain charactersí motivations but Iíve seen the movie, I know that already. He also does talk a lot about what he wanted to say with the movie and what he wanted to accomplish with certain scenes. In all fairness, what he said made me think of things I hadnít thought of before (and things he hadnít said), so at least thereís that. Heís passionate about his movie, so even though itís not the most interesting commentary, itís better than some for that reason.

I pretty much agree with the above reviewer. Though it is'nt the most entertaining commentary out there, it's just interesting enough to make you sit through it. I dont mind the narrating that much because it always has a purpose and he's quite elaborate when he discusses the ideas behind the scenes, which is quite nice.
Favourite bit: When he explains that the ending was changed at the last minute (and to the better).
