We've reviewed the Canadian disc, which also includes a detailed look at the film - http://filmfreakcentral.net/dvdreviews/existenz.htm

Seek out this Canadian DVD if you have a choice: it has a longform documentary and three commentary tracks vs. Miramax's nothing, and these extras really do enhance one's appreciation of the film.

Cheers,

DVD File's eXistenZ faceoff: Beuna Vista vs. Alliance Atlantis

The Canadian disc is better, though both have excellent anamorphic transfers & 5.1 audio.

cheers, Tony Block

Not one of Cronenbergs better films, the concept was good and has his unique "gross out" effects but the story was a bit weak.

But I still enjoy his works...check out Videodrome, Scanners, Dead Ringers, to name a few.
