There was a rumor about this release, but then nothing happened. Wasn't there a detailed list of all the special features? I don't think it was ever truly "announced", sort of like the Criterion Eraserhead that never happened either.
The Game is a fairly recent film starring Michael Douglas that was butchered on DVD by Polygram, who no longer exists. This would make it perfect fodder for Criterion. However, in their press releases, are you sure they weren't talking about Rules of the Game, the Jean Renoir classic.
The 2 most recent Discs I have are "A Perfect Murder" with Michael Douglas & Gynweth Paltro. "The Game" with Michael Douglas I couldn't get into that one, that's in my second changer for a view some other day. "Basic Instinct" Michael Douglas and Sharone Stone, I also have the CD soundtrack for B.I.
I agree that's quite likely, but I didn't notice at the time. For some reason, I resisted the urge to buy it but I really did enjoy the movie. It had a nice suspenseful edge and I thought Michael Douglas and Sean Penn were both quite good.
