A stonkingly original film that seems destined to become a cult favourite, Dave Made A Maze s accompanied here by one of those rare audio commentaries that's as entertaining as the film itself. You'll want to listen to it all the way through (after watching the film without it, of course). The behind the scenes feature doesn't achieve the same technical quality but is likewise full of amusing anecdotes and insights, and reflects the enthusiasm that shines through in the finished product.

The fundraising pitch included here is as awful as its name suggests and shows just how hard the team had to work to achieve their dream. There's also lots of behind the scenes footage of set building and information about the artwork created for the film, most of which survived for only a few hours. The trailers are fun but give away some of the secrets of the maze, so save them until afterwards.
