Alien 20th Anniversary Edition (20th Century Fox)
Out of print, but worth seeking out for the extras. The three alternate soundtracks - a Ridley Scott commentary, an alternate sound mix and the isolated score - were not carried over to the Alien Quadrilogy box.
Almost Famous/Untitled - The Bootleg Cut
(DreamWorks) Almost Famous is writer/director Cameron Crowe's barely fictionalized memoir of his beginnings as a teenage rock journalist. Untitled is the extended 150-minute version of the film, and that's where he put the commentary, which answers every "What inspired this scene?" query and includes Crowe's mom (played by Frances McDormand in the film). Easter eggs, deleted scenes and a seven-cut CD of songs by Stillwater, the film's fictional band, round out the picture.
Natural Born Killers (Warner, 1994)
Oliver Stone may well be stoned on his commentary for NBK, a drift through production history, casting and philosophical musings that verge on poetry.
Winchester 73 (Universal, 1950)
The back of the box advertises a "James Stewart interview" without mentioning that the interview is positioned as a full-length commentary on Anthony Mann's masterful revenge western. Stewart made the commentary in the early 90s for the laser disc, and though past 80 at the time, he was a lot less annoyingly folksy than in his later talk show appearances.
True Romance ( Warner, 1993)
Screenwriter Quentin Tarantino starts talking during the credits and takes his first breath about an hour into the film. Whatever you want to say about Tarantino, he's rarely dull.
