Election PosterElection is a wonderfully odd movie with Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon and Directed by Alexander Payne who also directed such great movies as Sideways and About Schmidt.

This DVD Commentary is really about Alexander Payne’s directing and writing and directing process. Alexander is extremely well spoken and does a good job of mixing his commentary with out completely blotting out the movie in the background. I had not seen the movie in a long time and the way Alexander’s comments intermixed with the actual audio made it easy to remember what happened.

Very few commentaries are worth listening to but this is definitely worth it if you have any interest in either Election or how directors come to create their own voice.
