To Kill a Mockingbird is wone of the greatest movies ever made. This commentary is a good compliment to the film. We get insight into the making of the film and it's overall themes. Excellent comentary.

This commentary has some interesting content, and an overall laid-back and spontaneous atmosphere that is nice, but it's also quite tiresome to sit through. Mulligan (who died recently) and Pakula (who recorded the track probably just some months before his untimely death in 1998), make their narrative so adrift and random that whatever substantial information they have to tell soon becomes occasional observations while they watch the movie, and sometimes occasional whispers.

A little bit boring. They are talking about working with children, the sets, the limited budget, the reasons for b/w, the tone of the movie, the titles, the score and the novel. There are gaps on the track and some repeats for the documentary.

They are talking dry and slow. I miss information about the development of the script. The track is quite nice but not a must. 5 out of 10.
