A good commentary. The director talks about his motivation for making this movie, the actors, working with Mitchum, the script and the problems working with a japanes crew. He talks also about the gap between the differences in dealing with guilt in the east and the west Pollack haven't seen this movie for decades.

Pollack is extremely open and honest about the film and its production. Only problem is that occasionally he seems as if he's having to try and remember the film as he hadn't seen it in decades.
Essential for fans of the film, and a great insight into his methodology.
