Jean-Luc Godard's classic Band of Outsiders gets the treatment it deserves from Criterion. The film is presented in the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The French soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include interviews, a documentary made at the time of production, an explanation of the visual and verbal jokes found throughout the film, trailers, the Agnès Varda short Les Fiancés du Pont Mac Donald, and a 16-page booklet with additional information about the making of the film. This is the kind of release that has made Criterion one of the premiere names in home video.
