Lieberman (joined by interviewer/fan/moderator Howard Berger) is very casual in this commentary. It's a solid track, filled with stories about casting, stunts, and '70s Los Angeles. The director takes repeated jabs at his own mistakes, which leads to some humorous moments throughout the commentary. He admittingly gave his star the wrong direction, which probably explains Zalman King's severely "over the top" performance. The most inspired set pieces come in the final act, and that's where the commentary really picks up. If you can hang in there, you'll learn how "Sunshine" became the first movie to say "Disco Sucks!" Along the journey, you'll hear about exotic birds and Jeff Goldblum's brush with this film's destiny. A Fun Listen. 8/10
