The House of Black Crush strikes again: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film10/blu-ray_review_155/double_indemnity_4K_UHD.htm

I have the Universal BRD. Any reason to get this Criterion?

as for the movie itself: I don't have a UHD player. As far as the BRD's are concerned, based on Beaver's screencaps I wouldn't necessarily say the Criterion is any better.

As for bonus features: I recall seeing the Schlondorff interview elsewhere ? though I'm not sure it was quite 3 hours. Was it ever released, perhaps in truncated form, on any other Wilder BRD's?

Right. Different; not necessarily better.
