The commentary by the dozen of cast and crew members was taken from individual interviews, and, as usual in commentaries of this type, the disconnected testimonies rarely have any relation to what is shown on the screen, despite being, individually considered, sometimes very interesting. What goes unnoticed everywhere is that the real star of this commentary track is a guy named, if I remember correctly, John Cork, from the "Ian Fleming Foundation". He acts as a host to the various interviews and does the usual "film historian" routine, sometimes repeating what we've just heard from another guest. His participation is what gives the listener the most benefit from watching the movie simoutaneously with the commentary, but doesn't mitigate its aforementioned drawbacks.
