This commentary is worth listening to, no matter if you liked the movie or not. Director Gavin Hood is quite eloquent and well prepared. He talks about character motivation, the use of stylistic devices, the cast, as well as his personal experiences while working in South African townships. There is not one single gap in between his comments. This commentary track would have been perfect if Hood had provided more contextual information about South African cinema. Recommended!

Director Gavin Hood starts talking as soon as you push play and doesn't stop until the movie's over. He expands on greatly on the themes and ideas behind the story and delves somewhat into south african life and customs. Other interesting parts of the film he mentions are the changes made from the book which it is based which seem to be quite numerous, but apparently the writer loved the movie.

There are loads more I could mention cause Hood provides such a plethora of information in the commentary. If you liked the movie this commentary is higly recommended, you'll get a much deeper understanding of all aspects of Tsotsi and the making of it.
