This is a nice track. Itís a lot of fun and the group seems to be pretty proud of the work. This being a low-budget movie commentary track, they talk a lot about how they had to deal with their low budget, telling you how one place was used for a few locations, whose apartment/car/whatever is on screen, and that type of thing. Something I found interesting is that, even in the background as set design, you have to clear the posters for movie use. They talk a lot about the actors (and probably are nicer about the performances than most people will think), and the more technical aspects of the movie. Mr. Harrison, though, talks about the drug-taking and that he wanted to show the bad parts about it. I think he didnít succeed in that aspect as much as he thought he did. They also praise many, many people, and talk about the music (which, I suppose, would be a crime if they didnít). One thing that bugged me throughout the movie is that they keep telling you that the budget was so small, yet they never give you an actual number. (Roughly half a million, Iíve read elsewhere.) In any case, this is a very enjoyable track, giving you added enjoyment and information on the movie.
