This is a great little commentary track, running along in a nice pace with a good mix of funny anecdotes coupled with more serious comments about the ideas behind the film.

As this is a very low-budgeted film with basically no studio/producer interruption in the filming the commentary is wholeheartedly focused on the creative aspects of the making of the film and it makes for an arresting listen. I admit I was surprised at how much thought went into seemingly insignificant scenes and it was really a joy hearing the director talking about it, as well as hearing the two main actors elaborating on their involvement in the film.

I would almost go so far as to say that this is a "cosy" commentary and it enhanced my enjoyment of the movie.
