For those disappointed with the lack of a director commentary on The Matrix disc, this commentary is surprisingly revealing as to the (usually) silent Wachowskis' working methods. The bros. are occasionally mush-mouthed, but the content is very good.

An absolute delight. Be warned, the bulk of the commentary is carried by Susie Bright, who was less actress and more technical advisor -- on lesbian subculture. Fortunately, the girl ain't shy, and she's funny as hell. This is a collaborative commentary with all of them in the room. I don't remember the W's having a whole lot to say, but still, enjoyable and enlightening.

Jennifer and Gina don't enter the commentary until the final 40 minutes.

The rest of the commentary is just the Wachowskis breathing on the microphone and EATING! So there's plenty of CHOMP! CHOMP! CHEW! CHOMP! Because that's what you want to hear in a commentary, innit? Besides that, it's just really a bore. Untill, Jennifer and Gina enter the room.

So, if you're gonna watch this commentary, skip to the final 40 minutes which is hysterically funny.

I can see why the Wachowskis don't do commentaries. I'll give it a 6 for that final 40 minutes.

This is an odd commentary, but it's the only one featuring the Wachowskis who are indeed silent most of the time - but let out on SOME information about how they shot the film or what they were trying to achieve. The final 40 minutes are indeed the 'life' of the commentary when Tilly comes in and Gershon, a few minutes later. Tilly doesn't shut up until the end at which point I gave up taking notes. Overall, it's average.

Definitely slow and quiet in the beginning, but picks up around the halfway point. There are definitely some interesting tidbits, but not much comes from the directors themselves, who must have had a really interesting story about making the film, and if you have seen their other work, must be very interesting directors to hear talk about their craft.
