Doesn't seem like the Psychological test film from the lasderdisc is ported over, unless that is considered "Behind the scenes" material.

Wow, this is a release I always just chalked up to internet hopefuls. Must have been close to 10 years ago I remember rumblings about this to begin with. Nice to see it finally gets a release it deserves.

So is the movie's title.


I am SO glad this is finally coming out. I don't think I've watched this since seeing it on VHS back in the day, but it blew me away.

Awesome! Can't wait to own it! Now if only Criterion can bring Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai on blu ray, that would rock.

As someone who has never seen the film, I can say that the cover is not a spoiler because I can't relate it to movie. Your response, manic, IS a spoiler because now I know why the cover relates to The Game. Dont worry, ill forgive you.
