"Man who wasn’t there" R1 vs. R2?

Does anyone know what the full details are for the R2 UK version? The R1 has the following:

Dolby digital 5.1
Commentary with Thornton and the Coen brothers
Making “The Man Who Wasn’t There”
Interview with cinematographer Roger Deakins
Deleted material
Behind the scenes photo gallery
Filmographies
Theatrical trailer
TV spot 1 and 2

I know that some of those features are on the R2 disc but are all of them? R2 has DTS but if the extras are lacking…

I'm importing the R2 version for the dts track. Last I read, it would be a barebones release.

Only a very minor point and probably a factor just to designers like myself and certain movie poster fans, but the R2 release is by EIV who slap some of the worst covers known to man on their DVDs and this title is no exception:



R1 cover is infinitely more stylish although probably not enough to outweigh the advantage of dts.

i find it surprising people will compromise picture quality(unless you have a PAL tv) jsut to get a little better sound, especially on a heavy dialogue film. Even if you have a great PAL converter there is still conversion.

I read that the color print was for Japan where audiences just will not watch a b&w movie.

The region 3 - 2 disc version I have (I believe it's from Universe) has it in both
(1 per disc). Been a while and a few TV upgrades since I watched either so I
don't remember much about the quality.

Brooklyn's probably talking about the Korean release, and he's right, it's pretty sweet. Basically the same as the R1 set, but with a second disc and DTS... (For the record, about 4 or 5 releases have both versions...)
