This is an interview, of sorts, with Burstyn asking Selby questions, and through this do we get an intimate and interesting look at him and his works, and exactly why they are the way they are. As a nice and welcome change from the other special features that hold moving pictures and deal with Aronofsky's films, this doesn't have him commenting on what we see as it appears on screen(although, granted, the only one of those that were actually bad was the "making of" on Requiem for a Dream, found on the DVD of it, along with this). Instead, this is twenty minutes of mainly Hubert talking, and he is wonderful to listen to. Smart, sensitive and, as sappy and cliché as it sounds, a genuine inspirational story. Editing is subtle, as it should be. Cinematography is what one would expect... and kudos to them for not trying to do anything other than that, as it would probably simply take away from the conversation. There may be a few instances of strong language, I wasn't certain. I would say that those who have read the man's books, as well as those who haven't looked at a single such page(and that, for now, includes yours truly), can get a lot out of watching this. I recommend it to both groups. 8/10
