English commentaries on French R2 dvds not available R1

I will be travelling to Paris soon and wanted to know what dvds have English language commentary tracks on French R2 dvds that are not available on R1 dvds?
I have Flash Gordon which has an audio commentary track by the director Mike Hodges that is unique to the French R2 pal DVD. Are there any others?

I am unsure of what exactly you are looking for....strictly commentaries or are you also open to other non-R1 extras? In addition, I am unsure if you are looking for a specific genre....

Mullholand Drive boasts some extras that are not present on the R1 disc....

The recently discussed Caligula 2dvd does as well.....etc.

They Live (Invasion Los Angeles)
Prince of Darkness (Prince des ténèbre) but there is image quality issues with this release.

These are two off the top of my head. There are several releases in France that have superior extras, but lack commentary tracks.

Red Sonja
Raw Deal
Ghosts of Mars
Subway
Crying Freeman
The Man Who Wasn't There

The Commentary on Flash Gordon will NEVER be available in the US unless they censor out his remarks about George Bush. (He basically compares him to Ming the Merciless)
