Packaging / Design

The glossy slipcase comes off as a really good design for this film. I mean it just looks great (!), doesn't it? As for the book, it feels very high quality and the images are just beautiful.

My only real concern with the packaging would probably be the digipack. For some reason, the white digitray used to hold the disc is a bit smaller than the surrounding cardboard (which is also quite weak by the way). A trivial detail perhaps but I'm guessing this is one of those design-flaws that will result in some pretty damaged (cardboard) corners over the years.

But then again... the artwork is really nice and clean just like it should be (thank god for independent filmmaking)... and just for that I'm gonna stick my head out and give this case a 7 out of 10 rating, despite the slight size-issue of the digipack.


Disc contents / Extras

This release includes the full feature length documentary running for 52 minutes. Checking out the extras you'll find the official documentary trailer but also a little over 17 min of bonus footage. In it you'll se some more clips with messengers seen in the film, but also some stuff with other riders who never made it into the final cut.

All in all, the bonus footage is pretty cool but I sure wish there were some more extras on here (I know it's directoral debut documentary and I'm guessing there migh tnot have been a lot more footage to include. But an audio commentary would hav been a really nice feature).


Sidenotes

This release is usually categorised as a book rather than a dvd (the dvd is just a supplement). The book carries the same title as the dvd, which is plainly "Pedal". It's a photobook filled with images from documentary film project.

The book was published by PowerHouse Books in may, 2006. It was written by Zephyr, Ken Miller and Swoon, and produced by Ann Lombardo. All the photos were done by the films director Peter Sutherland.
