It's an actual Blu-ray disc. And Criterion never include the digital copy, but they always make up for having the best transfers of the film.

No way. Criterion is on record as being too stubborn and too cheap to simply copy from their UHD masters onto UHD disc releases. Total waste of their 4K remastering.

"What the market can bear" blah blah blah. The old complaint of M.B.A.s and accounting departments of corporations that don't have a clue.
It's because the studios Criterion asks permission from don't want them to do 4k because Criterion is a niche market. The average person will buy a Fear and Loathing 4k or bluray due to cheapness over a Criterion Blu or hypothetical 4k version so it's really true that it's what their market can support lol

According to the review, this is a 1080P Bluray, remastered from a 4K master. It's even region-locked. No doubt it is far better than a previous blu-ray, but I still don't understand how they try to justify the original sticker price. Why not actually release a 4K copy, with or without digital?

It's also all over youtube and in the Internet Archive [archive.org]. I'm not certain, but I think it might be in the public domain. I'm sure those don't look anywhere as good as this disc, but this is a great movie that's well worth seeing if you're into film noir.

The Criterion Channel Stream [criterionchannel.com] is the Remastered film version from the Criterion Collection.

This film is in the public domain but what you can get looks pretty terrible.

Right, like I said, you took a business class at community college and that's partly how it works. Doesn't change how stupid and short-sighted it is for Criterion to refuse to catch up with technology. UHD is the bare minimum now. And no, "the studios" (as if it's the 1970s) aren't preventing Criterion from releasing UHD.
Digital is the new thing to buy/rent/see. No one that I know in person owns a dedicated 4K UHD player even though most own a 4K TV. Criterion movies are niche, the old movie lovers will buy the BR now and if 4K disc proves to have a big enough base they will do a 4K release where the same people will buy again the movie and will not have to $$$ creating. Creating a combo pack would affect them as well. They are trying and have tried to go the subscription digital movies instead of moving to 4K. You must have taken a business class in community college as well. Peace

Ever heard of the economics term "incremental cost"? Look into it, thinking of the fictional added cost to burn a UHD versus HD Blu-ray.
