Katherine Orrison, repeating the features that made her commentary on the later version of the movie a reference, again makes a considerable amount of time flow like a breeze. She also brings one's attention to various subtleties in the movie to which one's unlikely to have paid attention in the first viewing, and even makes some insightful "Philosophy of Cinema" kind of remarks ("The movie camera is the only time machine that was ever invented").
