How films are made,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Passenger [DVD]  (DVD)
Apart from the superb film itself there are two 'commentaries' on this disc, one a run-through of the film with Jack Nicholson talking about his view of it as a masterpiece, describing some of his experiences while making the film, with some asides about Antonioni for whom he obviously has great admiration and affection. Similarly there is another run-through with the script-writer, Mark Peploe (who also wrote the original story). Though rather hesitant and understated, this is also worth-while.
For the student of film or for those of us who just love film as an art, this is an absolutely essential DVD. If the film at first seems slow and confused, stay with it, watch it again, play Nicholson's commentary. The experience will relive itself in your mind's eye with more and more understanding and pleasure.

Information about the subject matter of the film is readily available elsewhere. This reviewer supplies a (useful) description of the "extras" on the new DVD version - information that is not readily available elsewhere. Thanks to him for that.
