If there is one reason why everyone should own every single Criterion DVD ever made, it is for their epic, all-time great special features.

Yes, the DVDs may be expensive, but if you want to go as in-depth as one could possibly go, these are the end-all be-all of DVD sets and collections. Normally available only on DVD, it looks like The Playlist is doing us all a solid, and bringing us one of the company’s better special features via Vimeo.

The recently released 3-Disc edition of Steven Soderbergh’s CHE is not only a great DVD that brings the public a horribly underrated epic, but it also features this killer 33 minute documentary on the film and the RED camera that the director used to shoot the film. It’s called “CHE and the Digital Cinema Revolution,” and is a must-watch for not only fans of Soderbergh and CHE, but for fans of film and the art and technology behind it.

It is also a good look at what we may expect to see tech-wise, as both KNOCKOUT and CONTAGION will be shot with the camera, which he has been working with ever since the Guevara biopic. It's a great insight into the production of a truly great film from one of today's most respected filmmakers.  Need I really say more?
