Packaging / Design

Most likely the best packaging you'll get for this film at this point but not as all as cool as one would hope. As you can see from the picture, this is basically you're typical cardboard slipcase, but on the downside, it opens at the wrong end making the front- and backcover face the wrong way. Still, once you put it into the shelf with the spine outwards, no one is the wiser. However, people will surely note the fact that the title on the spine is also printed in the opposite direction of what is to be considdered normal (bloody germans!).

And ps. The slipcase is a light glossy feel done for the the top banner that reads "Special Edition" on the front, as well as for the line of photos, and the image of Michael Douglas running on the back. Everything else is non-glossy. Kind of an odd choice but it's looks fine. There is very little structure to the the slipcase but the logo on the front has been embossed ever so slitghtly on the yellow edges.


Disc contents / Extras

I had been waiting for this special edition for ages and it was about time that this forgotten little Fincher classic got itself an update. But how good is it you might ask. Well, it's an OK edition for sure, there's some behind the scenes and on location stuff all with a much welcomed commentary track. And we also get a feature length commentary for the whole film. Still, I hardly think this is enough as the time span for the extras is still pretty sparse if you compare it to some of the director's other masterpieces.

So the bottomline is still that this release is just to little to late, but it will have to do for the time being. I sure hope they will re-do this set in time and add a couple of extra discs for some more indepth documentaries and such.


Sidenotes

I'm not entirely sure but I think the cardboard slipcase was only availble on the german release, and from what I can gather, it was strictly a first pressing bonus.
