Altman is dull and repetitive. Tolkin redeems this commentary somewhat.

Altman and Tolkin are recorded separately. Tolkin talks about the differences between the book, the series and the movie. Not so interesting.

Altman has some good points about the script and the actors. You get not so many facts about the movie itself. The best parts are about working outside “The Hollywood System” and Altman’s style in general. The track is solid. 8 out of 10.
