The Road: A Good First Try
Director John Hilcoat admits in the beginning of the commentary that he has never before attempted his hand at giving an audio commentary before. He says he is just going to “wing it”. He tries his best and does well, I am happy to report. His commentary, though filled with quite a bit of “ummms” and “ahhhs” and a few moments of awkward silence, manages to keep the momentum going while providing insightful looks into the process of creating the adaptation. I would recommend watching the commentary to anyone who is interested in learning more about this remarkable film based on an even more remarkable novel.
