Lax is an expert for Paul Newman. He talks about Newmanâ€™s career up to this movie, the script, the locations, the DP, the score, the actors, the director, movies of 1967 etc. Good points are the analysis of some scenes. The style from Rosenberg ist also mentioned. There are no gaps.
This track is perfect. Donâ€™t miss it. 10 out of 10.

At times the commentary descends into pure narration with irritating statements of the obvious relaying what is happening onscreen. But this is more then compensated for by the genuine insights Lux provides bolstered by his extensive knowledge of cast, crew and source material. Also of note is his ability to place the film into its artistic and cultural context.
