Also on the disc
Criterion offers a two-disc presentation of the 2008 Oscar-winner, stamped as "Director Approved." Hard to miss that, since David Fincher is all over the extras on this one: he provides a talkative commentary track for the 165-minute film, which leaves little doubt about his fabled involvement in every aspect of the results you see on screen, and he figures in the documentary sections contained on the second disc. Fincher is such an assured, skillful talker that he easily justifies the otherwise standard-issue collection of behind-the-scenes material. The documentary sections can be played as one epic (three hour) making-of feature, which actually lasts longer than the film itself; they are also carved up and can be played in handy parts: the origins of the project (tons of people considered making it, including Frank Oz, Ron Howard, and Spike Jonze), the flabbergasting technical trickery involved, shooting in post-Katrina New Orleans, and anything else you can think of. Especially illuminating is the step-by-step stuff about how Brad Pitt's face was motion-captured for the purposes of morphing it onto the work of body doubles--in case you're still puzzled about how all that really worked. The usual production stills and an essay by Kent Jones fill out the package. --Robert Horton

Thought this was a boring movie. Maybe I just didn't get it. Strange how no actor in the movie seemed at all surprised by the fact that he was growing younger. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Paul D. Rockwood

I just took a wild stab in the dark and ordered. When it arrives, I'll let you know if the slipcover and insert are still included on the package. But even if they weren't, at 4.96 (Black Friday week price) I'm not complaining, though.

The product image has been updated to reflect the Criterion cover art, but there's still no mention of this being the Criterion edition in the description.
