A solid commentary. Jewison talks a lot about the script, the tone of the movie and working with the actors. He has also some points about the reactions of movie at the end of 1979. The technical points of filmmaking – except the editing- are discussed rarely. He is still impressed by Pacino’s work. He mentions Pacino’s collaboration with his acting teacher Lee Strassberg in the movie. It is always a joy to listen to a classical director like Jewison. Recommended.

Agree. Always great to hear stories about Jack Warden and Baltimore. Besides the iconic final scene, who knew "..And Justce for All" was the beginning of so many careers in Hollywood: Craig T Nelson, Jeffrey Tambor, and Barry Levinson. Cool Track.

Norman Jewison's commentary is the kind that sets a standard. He knows what the audience is curious about and wants to hear.
There are lots of stories about the making of the film, the political and judicial climate the film was made in, technical aspects, the origins of the story and screenplay, shot locations, scene breakdowns, the actors angle, etc. He covers so many areas and really gives you a broad insight into what this film is about and how it was made. Excellent.
