I've recently expanded my DVD collection from around 20 films which I watched, then I watched the extras, then the commentaries by the driectors and crew etc. I now have around 100 films and have spent much more time just watching and enjoying the films, and have hardly watched any extras. Spending a couple of hours watching a commentary can be great - I enjoyed the Sam Mendes commentary on American Beauty almost as much as I enjoyed the film - which I love Other films with commentary which I have enjoyed have been things like Donnie Darko where the film has alternate meanings to different people and its good to hear the directors take on things. So are there any commentaries you really enjoyed or found enhanced your understanding of the film that you'd recommend sitting through? Alternatively - who are the directors that add nothing to their work on celluloid by talking over it? Ian.
