1- This release contains two fewer TV Spots than other releases.
2- This original release Criterion Collection DVD contains additional deleted scenes not found on other releases while at the same time has shorter versions of the same scenes found on other releases. The 2018 Criterion Collection releases combine both sets of deleted scenes to offer a complete set of scenes.
3 - Portions of these documentaries appear in the Breaking The Silence Picture-in-Picture Feature.
4- Only a single trailer appears on this release while others have two.
5- These three features are combined into a single "Jonathan Demme & Jodie Foster" on this release.
6- This release combines the storyboards into a single ~four minute slideshow.
7- This release offers the most complete version of the deleted scenes. Previously the original Criterion Collection DVD release contains one set of scenes while all other releases contained another (with some overlap). This release combines both sets.

NOTES:
The Criterion Bluray compiles almost all of the previously released features including different and exclusive deleted scenes that were only available on the original Criterion DVD release. Those scenes have been combined with the scenes found on all other releases to offer a complete package of deleted scenes. The exclusive Audio Commentary from the original Criterion DVD has been included as well. This release still lacks a few minor features but overall is a strong choice for a CORE set.
