Packaging / Design

This set comes with a clean and good looking digistack, encased in you avarge cardboard slipcase. The artwork for this set might not be as ingenious as the R1 limited edition, but it still comes off as a pretty nice design on the whole.


Disc contents / Extras

First off I'd like to give a bit of extra praise to the menu-system done for this release. The R1 special edition came with an akward yet equally clever menu-system in the form of a large asortment of psychological tests, and this was really cool but it was also very frustrating when it came to navigating your way around.

This set however, comes with an equally good looking (possibly even cooler?) design showing the menu selections as tattoos which are strategically placed on all four sides of Guy Pearces upper body. This might not sound like much of a design but it's cleverly animated to add a nice look of the character breathing and the camera swoops around to the different parts of the torso in a very slick and visually eye-catching fashion.

As for the contents I think it's safe to say that this set is pretty equal to any other top ranking edition currently out there. We get two cuts of the movie - the standard version and the altarnate chronological edit cut, both of which are presented with English DTS and DD 5.1.

There are two good interviews with director Christopher Nolan and actor Guy Pearce, as well as the always entertaining "Anatomy of a Scene" featurette.

One of the big pluses of the set is however the original short story by Jonathan Nolan (from which the film originated), which is narrated by the author himself and accompanied by a nice landscape of interesting graphics and sounds.

On a sad note none of the extras come with subtitles but apart from this it's a pretty good lineup.


Sidenotes

The Chronological order edit of the film is only available as an easter-egg. Once on disc 2, highlight "Biographies" and press right. This highlights a previously hidden option which dissapears after a while. If you press it before it goes away, you'll gain access to the alternate cut of the film.

I don't understand what you're referring to, Bruno.

Great one, but I guess you missed the little "polaroid paper note".
