Although you might take Director Shelton's commentary to be rather dry, I would recommend sticking with this track to its' conclusion. Shelton provides a non-stop commentary about every facet of the film, "Dark Blue." Any fan of Kurt Russell will want to hear how his leading man delivered such a bravura performance. IMHO, his best yet. Great stories about co-stars Ving Rhames and Brendan Gleeson, filming in obscure L.A. neighborhoods, and the fundamentals of storytelling abound throughout the commentary. There is a lot to be gleamed about story structure and how to lead an audience, through piece-meal revelation, to an inevitable, yet surprising conclusion. There is a bit too much praise for EVERY one involved. But, Shelton's track is just self-deprecating enough to take the shine off. This is as good as his track for "Bull Durham." 8/10
