A rather nice and substantial commentary, at least for the most part. From the start, the speakers keep a very informal and laid-back atmosphere to the procedures and are able to impart some great information. After an hour or so, however, they seem to run out of what to say and turn "Film Historian Mode: ON", which means they start to overanalyze the movie through modern politically corect filters (sadly, a common plague in commentaries), but since this is very brief it doesn't hurt the track's overall good shape.
