    Every time I see the Traffic DVD at the store,
    I scratch my head and think,
    "How can a movie this good, nominated
    for tons of Academy Awards, not have a special edition?"

    It also appears that Criterion has established
    a decent relationship with USA Films as of recent,
    and it just makes soo much sense for an SE to
    be forthcoming.
    Any thoughts or news?

    It is strange.. however, there's a few versions out there if you have a multiregion DVD player.
    UK R2 has a bunch of deleted scenes, but loses the fluff promotional featurette. (and is dirt cheap) French R2 has 2 discs, one for the movie(w/DTS) and the other for the extras.
    Neither are what you and I would call a fully-loaded special edition. [​IMG] Maybe Criterion have something hidden in the bag for us.[​IMG]

    Mark, if you want a special edition of Traffic, buy the current version. The next day, a Traffic SE will be announced. See, easy as pie! [​IMG]
