Making-Of Featurette and Extended Scenes
The DVD contains a making-of featurette that runs a little over seven minutes. I can't say I got much out of it, although I was glad to be able to see writer-director Richard Shepard.
Also on the DVD are 11 deleted/extended scenes with a total running time of about 16 minutes. These can be watched either with or without commentary by Shepard. I found two of these mildly interesting. One shows Julian having a nightmare where he stands in a bullring with blood all around him. Another is the extended version of Julian's visit to a sex club, where Shepard appears on camera briefly, but the director ruthlessly cut his own cameo.
Below I have given the details for the DVD containing The Matador.
