Director Robinson and DP Lindley provide a nice narrative along with "Field Of Dreams." There's a veritable array of stories concerning adaptation of the novella "Shoeless Joe," film locations, and about acting choices. Quite revealing in the amount of technical feats accomplished on 'Dreams.' It surprised me how involved ILM and Motion-capture were on this film. The most engrossing talk concerned Burt Lancaster. Stay through the credits to learn proposed titles for this classic baseball film. It's the usual mixture of insight and thematic discussion one can expect from commentaries involving Robinson. I recommend this track, along with "Sneakers."

Insightful, to say the least. This falls into the category of 'rarely stopping to breathe' type of track. Be sure to pay attention to the voices of both of these two when they introduced themselves as their tones are very similar so if you don't do that, you'll have trouble identifying who is speaking of the two. A great track, VERY screen-specific.
