Okay, I was under the impression (and please correct me if I'm wrong) that a single-sided, single-layered DVD could hold 2 hours; a double-sided, single-layered DVD or single-sided, double-layered DVD could hold 4 hours; and a double-layered, double-sided DVD could hold 8 hours.

Keeping that in mind, I was at my brother's house the other day, and he had a copy of the DOGMA DVD (I'm holding out for the SE). I took a look at it, and noticed it was a double-sided, single-layered DVD: widescreen on one side, fullscreen on the other. How is this possible? Each side would only be able to hold 2 hours, and the film itself (not counting the menus and trailers) is 2 hours 8 minutes long.

I'm probably completely wrong about all this, but please, I need answers.
