The Top Selling Video this season at SHE is the 'Collateral (Two-Disc Special Edition)'

Product Description
Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx. An edge-of-your-seat thriller has a super cool and super calm contract killer making his hits one stop at a time right out of his cab for a perfect getaway every time. Directed by Michael Mann. 2004/color/122 min/R.

Additional Features
The seemingly obligatory director's commentary is not on this two-disc set of Michael Mann's slick thriller yet the extras are so good you won't miss it. On the surface, there's nothing out of the ordinary here with the exception of a few minutes of rehearsal footage, but everything is just so darn interesting to watch. Mann and his stars dish about the making of the film, including the creation of Cruise's assassin. The nighttime shooting (shot digitally and transferred sublimely) is examined along with a single deleted scene (with a clear explanation on why it was cut). Think the climatic finale aboard a train was shot on a subway for convenience? No, Mann just wanted to control the backgrounds! Best of all, hit "play all" and view the entire second disc with no return-to-menu nuisance. --Doug Thomas
