In what is sure to be one of the stranger and perhaps more innovative moves by a director, Rian Johnson is releasing his commentary track for “The Brothers Bloom”…now. Like, right now. You can go get it right here.
“Did I miss the DVD release? Was the film that unpopular?” you cry. No! While the site says, “iPhone”, it’s an mp3 track. Any mp3 player should play it. The important thing to remember is that A) make sure you bring your headphones; and B) make sure the light on your device isn’t on or at least totally obscured so you don’t distract the other patrons from this fantastic film.
I’m planning to see the film again this weekend but if I go for a third time, I’ll definitely load this up onto my iPod.
Oh, and the film opens in the following cities tomorrow: Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, Washington D.C. Go see it. Everyone else, go see it May 29th.
