I was thrilled to come across this limited edition steelcase as it's really the only edition to come with any kind of special packaging at all.
The steelcase comes with a glossy finnish and feels like a pretty nice design overall. The artwork is very classic but it's still a good choice to begin with.
OK, what the hell were they thinking? This is the ONLY limited edition of this film on the market today and so I'm assuming that the focus group would be people with some kind of dvd interest that's just a tad higher than the average consumer's.
But despite the good looking case and the limited edition labeling, the disc itself will probably go down in history as one one of the worst releases of this film ever to see the light of day.
This disc has NO extras, the film is presented in Fullscreen (!) and the audio is nothing but DD 2.0 stereo! Menus are static and not very good looking (the only selections are to play the movie or go to the scene selections). And as if this was not enough, the only subtitles provided for the film are dutch AND THEY'RE FUCKING BURNT IN SO YOU CAN'T EVEN SWITCH THEM OFF!
So there you have it, one of the worst disc ever produced for one of the best films of the 1990's. Hooray!
The back cover incorrectly states that the subtitles are optional.
