The second commentary (also recorded in 2006) features co-writer David Koepp (later to become one of Hollywood's hottest screenwriters; this was his first produced screenplay) and director Steven Soderbergh, the latter billed as "special guest" on the DVD's special features menu. Because their careers began at roughly the same time, Koepp and Soderbergh share voluminous insights about independent filmmaking in the late 1980s, how the industry has changed since then, and how Apartment Zero played a substantial role in Koepp's early-career education (including the hard-earned lesson about never investing in your own movie projects). Their free-ranging conversation covers a lot of detail about the making of Apartment Zero (and Koepp is a lively source of production anecdotes), but it's most valuable to aspiring filmmakers as an authoritative discussion between two talented filmmakers who've learned a lot about their craft, and are able to articulately share their perspectives. Soderbergh also serves as an inquisitive film buff, asking pertinent questions that keep the commentary flowing at a constantly fascinating pace. It's a valuable snapshot of filmmaking past and present, coming from a writer and director who speak vividly from experience. --Jeff Shannon

So Adrian "thinks" he likes girls, and is possibly even attracted to them; we can convince ourselves of all sorts of things.
A viewer today who objects to a film like this one has forgotten or never known what independent filmmaking can mean.

This is truly a fascinating movie, watchable on many levels. Hart Bochner was a remarkable piece of casting and this is perhaps his very best movie role. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Philip Chase
As a Colin Firth fan, I enjoyed seeing this film made before he became Mr. Darcy. Set in Argentina during the death squads, there are many odd characters in this film which traces... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Abigail1851

I've looked at this twice now and am finally able to see Colin Firth's performance as really amazing. The first viewing showed everything as just dark and disjointed. Read morePublished 23 months ago by kathy
