I still rent Netflix DVDs primarily for the commentary tracks. Most common tracks are the Director with either a Producer or some Actors. Occasionally I will find one with the DP among the commentary.

 

So far, ones I have found that were very informative were:

 

Capote - Adam Kimmel (Lars and the Real Girl, Never let me Go)

Scott Pilgrim - Bill Pope (Matrix trilogy, Fur, MIB 3)

Tropic Thunder - John Toll (Braveheart, Iron Man 3) - He doesn't say much in this.

 

Not a DP, but I've been watching early Bogdanovich's work with Lazlo Kovacs (Targets, Paper Moon) Peter goes into great detail about how they worked together in planning the shots. 

 

I am curious what DVDs you have found that have DP commentary tracks available? I'd love to rent them.

Thanks! I'll have to try those. 

 

Funny. A lifetime ago, I used to be a Landscape Architect. Robert Hahn was one of my boss's clients!

_Requiem for a Dream_ - Matthew Libatique

 

I've only rented the blu-ray, but I imagine the DVD will have the same features.
