Comment Another Cronemberg, although a lot more mainstream than his other movies. Weird and wonderful, and one of the new wave "self aware" matrix style movies.
All the trademark Cronemberg features are here, especially in terms of decay and mutation.
As there already are a few very good rips of this amazing movie, I decided to go for something new and release a triple-commentary version. All 4 audio tracks are muxed within the avi's. I know this is not a typical thing to do, but I really hate ogg and I didn't want to release the additional tracks as separate mp3's, because they always dry up pretty fast. If you don't like the idea, simply don't download the files. The release has been tested under BSPlayer and all tracks play fine.
You will probably notice tracks 3 and 4 are lower quality than track 2 (Cronenberg's comment). That's because I didn't want to go below certain video bitrate, but on the other hand I believe Cronenberg's comment is the most important of the additional tracks, so I didn't want his track to be that lq. TBH, tracks 3 and 4 sound quite shitty, because I didn't notice I didn't check "mono" and only realized it later, when everything was muxed and split into 2 avi's. Still, I decided to release it as it is, because it's not about the quality of the commentary but rather about its content.

It's a very interesting documentary on the making of eXistenZ, concentrating on the work of Cronenberg's production designer. Ripped from the original eXistenZ DVD.

...and 2 screens for you to know what to expect. The cropping is not perfect, I didn't notice the vertical edges of the picture were a bit blurred and this is how it came out in auto-cropping (I hope this does not impair your viewing experience , I am to lazy to encode it once again just because of this small detail, it's just a few pixels anyway):
