The director sucks some of the enjoyment out of this performance with his choice of hyperactive camera work. Perhaps he was trying to convey the fervent energy of the show, or maybe he was trying to mirror DB's stereotypical twitching stage persona (who, incidentally, seems to have gone back in his box. DB seems a lot more at ease on stage than music journalists would have you believe). Either way, it wasn't necessary in my opinion; I found it irritating at times.
Also, mini-interviews with DB pepper the DVD and break the flow of the music a little (the same crazy camera work even features in these interviews, which I found rather strange). It would've been nice if these were able to be toggled as you may not wish to watch them on repeat viewings. There is also a lack of extras, which is no problem from my perspective but others may expect more.
