Burd and Albarn have some nice thoughts and anecdotes, without falling into silence, praise or plot narration very often. They discuss many production challenges, to include weather, budget and studio interference. It is refreshing to have s composer paired with another commentator so it is not just talking between musical cues. This is a candid and appreciative commentary for a film that is impossible to classify.

It still remains an odd pairing to have character actor Jeffrey Jones alongside writer Ted Griffin for this one, but it works well. Jones speaks to his experiences filming on set and location, where Griffin was not always present. Additionally, Jones prompts Griffin as a quasi-interviewer for insights on story origins and changes. Griffin, for his part, is engaging, humorous and self-deprecating about his script and how the film was improved by modifying or jettisoning some of his story elements. They recognize that this film did poorly financially but remain proud of it, as they should be.

Bonus: The Robert Carlyle track is middling with much silence and narration. I listened to it years ago but not this time. Skip it.
