Those not interested in paying more for the superb Criterion edition of Steven Soderbergh's award-winning Traffic can satisfy themselves with this release from Universal. The disc offers widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 (just like in theaters) and Dolby Digital Surround (a mix that was created specifically to be listened to at a lower volume). English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a making-of featurette, trailers, a photo gallery, and television promotional materials. The Criterion edition is superior, but those looking for a more affordable alternative are sure to be happy with this title.
