Since I am a film student, I found this commentary to be very useful, though I question whether others will find it so interesting. Oliver talks much on his personal philosophy of filmmaking, very interesting to myself since I share many of the same opinions (especially regarding lighting.) Most interesting is how he had closed sets built, meaning that they are 360 degrees with no pull-away walls, helping to create that claustrophobic feeling that pervades Der Untergang. Overall, a very informative commentary to what I consider is a very underrated and great film.
