Packaging / Design

This digipack might seem pretty standard but the digitray (plastic part) used for the digipack is twice as thick as your standard digitray. This makes for a very luxorious look even if the general coverart design is well recognized through a lot of other regions.

So for short; it's not as visually unique as one would hope for but it does go the extra length to separate it from all the keepcase-countries.


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

As far as I know, this is the only digipack release done for this film.
