    I have just got the new Trainspotting:The Definitive Edition through today from Play. Having a quick look through the Essay by Irvine Welsh in the booklet says it is (c) The Criterion Collection.

    Was there a Criterion Laserdisk that had this or is this an idicator to an R1 Criterion release ??.

    Just dad a look at the criterion laserdisc on the back cover it states the following "Exclusive liner notes by Irvine Welsh and a insert including his glossary of terms". Also on the disc is a video interview with Irvine. HTH

    There wont be a criterion release on DVd they couldn't secure the rights. The LD version was very good, but all the extras are included in the Def version, which i must say is very good indeed.

    There was indeed a Criterion version on Laserdisc - I guess it was just reprinted from there...
