Pretty good. Spike is the main speaker here, and he points out all there is to know about this film. He admits this is not one of his favorites, but sees it more as what gave him the opportunity to make other movies. Almost everyone in the movie is a friend of Spike, and he points them out to you, as well as talk about how everything came to be on such a low budget. The cinematographer said at one point that it was more expensive to shoot in black and white than with color, something I have a hard time believing, but he claims that the reason itís black and white is choice. Itís not by any means my favorite Spike Lee movie, in fact I liked this commentary much better than the movie. What I like about Spike is that heís honest, and doesnít try to hide the faults of the movie. Insightful commentary, but a little on the slow side. I would have wanted a little more enthusiasm. 7/10
