Scene-specific commentaries are the Procrustean bed of audio commentary tracks, which often result in a lot of dead air, so the approach used by critics (and apparently buddies) Friedfeld and Pfeiffer is the best way to go: talk about everything related to Flint and interrupt each other (or themselves) to point out something that's currently happening on-screen. I found it especially interesting to hear them talking about the bigger picture outside the main feature, including memorabilia collecting and TV spy shows which make up the 60s Spy milieu of the era. You don't have to be as big a fan as F&P are to enjoy or appreciate this track: there's so much info and background delivered in a casual yet informed way that it's simply a pleasure to listen to.
