The commentary IS good, especially because it is interesting to have a complicated film explained by the director himself. Cronenberg very well goes along the plot and makes references and comments on the symbolism. Sometimes he falls back into just describing what we see. He speaks very slowly and is one of the few english commentarys I can understand perfectly without subtitles. (Code 2 DVD, but I think in Code 1 it's the same commentary)

Cronenberg commentaries are always great. He's very articulate and quite impressive. The only problem with this commentary is that the pitch of his voice is wrong, it seems as if the commentary was recorded in a higher speed than the film is playing - so that his voice sounds slower and deeper.

This was my first time watching this film and I watched it with this commentary. I'm glad I did it that way. Cronenberg really explains this complex film of dreams, constructed memories, the mind. Not much technical information if you're looking for that - but a lot of insight into the story of the film.
