There's two extra discs plus a commentary track on this deluxe set. One disc is the same CD soundtrack of Clint Eastwood's moody score. The two featurettes--about 40 minutes--have interview bits from all the major talents, including Sean Penn succulently telling us why he doesn't like doing interviews. All the actors speak about what Eastwood calls "good old-fashioned ensemble acting" and author Dennis Lehane and screenwriter Brian Helgeland delve into their inspirations. The bulk of the second disc is two hours of interviews from The Charlie Rose Show with (separately) Eastwood, Tim Robbins, and Kevin Bacon. They often go off on other tangents such as Eastwood's early career and Robbins's political activism. Robbins and Bacon team up for the commentary track, and even though it would have been nice to have the writers or director, the two actors give a solid deconstruction of what's so special about an Eastwood set and how that shows up onscreen. --Doug Thomas
