  1. Not a link but a practice…I often watch the commentaries on DVDs, to get an idea of just why the director told the story the way he or she did.

    One that was particularly helpful was the commentary by J.J/. Abrams for the first of the ‘Star Trek’ reboots; he said a LOT about what he cut, and why, that really opened my eyes.
