A tough listen, this one, ported over to DVD from the days of laserdiscs. The main problem is that it's very hard to distinguish who is talking because they are all Italian speaking English as a second language, with varying degrees of fluency. This makes everyone sound a little uncomfortable - certainly no-one volunteers information without prompting, meaning that from start to finish the commentary is a series of questions from the moderator (many of which get vague or brief answers) with a lot of empty spaces in between. Argento is enough of a cult figure to guarantee that this track will be of interest to fans, but for the rest of us it's slow going.
