    I thought it would be good to have a thread that listed all of the reversible cover inserts on dvds.

    The only ones I know aboout are Fargo:SE , Schizopolis:Criterion , Adaptation , and The Pianist 3-Disc Canadian DVD . Any others?

    The other side of the Repo Man cover contains a blurb on the film.

    Bad Taste (also Anchor Bay) has a reversible cover. One side has the Alien giving the finger, the other side is the "clean" version originally edited for video rental stores back in the 80s.

    The UK Salvation releases of the Redemption films have reversable covers, with the new style covers (usually a still from the film) on the outside, and the old style covers with photos of models on the other.

    Also, dunno if it's a usual thing for Artificial Eye, but my R2 copy of The Piano Teacher has a reversable cover too. Normally one that looks like the UK cinema poster, and on the other side, a cover with the standard Artificial Eye layout.

    later.

    I think the Canadian version of the Back to the Future Trilogy has a reversable cover.

    All Alliance Atlantis titles in Canada have reversible cover art with the flip side in French. The same is true of newer Universal and DreamWorks titles (Sinbad comes to mind).

    A lot of the titles mentioned in this thread (like the "Big Fish" and Director's Label DVD's) don't have reversible cover art, they just have two-sided art and a clear case to view the other side, they aren't actually designed to be used as alternate cover art like "Fargo".
