A superb DVD with a top-notch documentary and menu design. The commentary is awful (innocuous and irritating in the extreme), but the documentary makes up for the commentary's deficiencies. The menu design is creative, and access to the extra features is easy. The film transfer is also near-perfect, and the sound mix is compelling.
