haven’t yet seen John August’s The Nines, but I’ve been told it’s a fascinating puzzle of a movie. If you have seen the film and are still turning it over in your head, the answers you’re looking for may be here now… in the form of an audio commentary.

As far as I can tell, The Nines is making history by being the first film to have director’s commentary while still in theaters. You can download the commentary to your iPod (or Zune, if you’re a douchefag) and go watch the film while John August and star Ryan Reynolds’ soothing and melodious tones tickle your eardrums and the movie tickles your brain cells.

This is a terrific way to get people to see a movie twice in theaters, and I’d certainly be interested in seeing this become almost a fixture of a film’s second or third week of release. I’d certainly run back to see The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford if I could have an Andrew Dominik commentary on one of my iPods.
