Special Features
This Superbit Deluxe DVD offers a second disc of supplements, as did the previously released special edition. While the previous edition included audio commentary, and a Stealing Stones interactive feature; these features are not included on Disc One of the Superbit Version (though Pikey subtitles are still available). The second disc offers the same features and Disc Two on the previous version including the several hidden features (a swearing gunfight, hidden interviews, and a character sequence). Make sure and watch the 25-minute making-of featurette, deleted scenes (with optional audio commentary), three storyboard segments, a video-style still photo gallery, and trailers and TV spots.

  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
It all starts with this huge diamond. And these guys dressed up like Hasidic Jews, led by Franky Four Fingers (Del Toro),

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced Superbit DVD (framed at 1.85:1) exhibits slightly sharper edges for a subtly cleaner visual experience when compared to the previously released DVD The stylized colors are desaturated, but perfectly complement the mood of the film. That said, hues are well balanced and nicely resemble the intentions of the filmmakers. The picture is solid, with satisfying sharpness and detail. There is a bit of edge enhancement noticed at times. Fine details shimmer on occasion, but overall this is a pleasantly gritty visual experience. (Suzanne Hodges)
