I may not be the best person to write about this commentary as I dislike the film, and the commentary certainly didn't make me want to try the film again. That said, Muller is his usual interesting self even if he, as a San Francisco boy, occasionally gets over-excited about identifying the San Fran locations. He is scene-specific though provides some pauses. He comments on how the film is more Woman in Jeopardy than film noir though has film noir components, casting, performance, cut scenes, documentary footage, locations/sets, score, costumes, production code issues, set decoration, source material, screenwriter, producer, director, on-set accidents, FX, and the changed ending.
