Mala Noche has been released in Region 1 (USA) by the Criterion Collection. That version contains the following which is not on the Region 4 Australian Directors Suite Release:
* Walt Curtis, the Peckerneck Poet: a documentary about the author of the book Mala Noche, directed by animator and friend Bill Plympton.
* Gus Van Sant's original storyboard gallery.
* An essay by film critic Dennis Lim.
The Region 4 Directors Suite release contains the following not on the Region 1 Criterion Collection release:
* Audio commentary by Claire Perkins, Assistant Lecturer in Film and Television, Monash University.
Personally, I would rather have an audio commentary rather that a 1 hour feature on the writer of Mala Noche, Walt Curtis. Overall, the extras balance themselves out and therefore I would call it a draw.
