It is clear that "A Mighty Wind" is destined for at least a few nominations come Oscar time—and a best original song nod is all but a given.

It is clear that "A Mighty Wind" is destined for at least a few nominations come Oscar time—and a best original song nod is all but a given. With that in mind, it is fitting that the folk music-driven film's DVD extras go overboard with musical-related goodies. The additional content includes the benefit show sequence in its entirety, "vintage" TV performances from the bands and a number of deleted song-driven scenes. Overall, 15 cut sequences from the film are included. All of the extra goodies are accompanied by an insightful audio commentary with director/writer Christopher Guest and actor/writer Eugene Levy.—KC
