My first commentary, this was very much a learning experience for me, and although there are a number of moments that don’t work quite as I planned, I am overall quite happy with the results. The version used, unsurprisingly, is the full 98-minute uncut version (94 minutes for PAL releases). The commentary is split into two sections, so that those who wish to burn audio CDs of the tracks will not have to split the commentary themselves.
I would recommend running the film at a low level of volume in the background when you listen to this commentary. The audio files themselves contain full instructions on how to synchronize the commentary with the film.
This track has a rather stilted feel to it, mainly because most of it was pre-written with very little deviation from the initial script. I hope to make my future commentaries more spontaneous.
The recommendation he makes is Kinoeye.org, but it’s unavailable.
