Does anybody know what's going on with this one? Any info on when it's coming out or exactly what's going to be on it? Or opinions on what SHOULD be done with it?

This is hardly a new idea, but I'm one of the proponents having the theatrical version of BR released on DVD. This is the only instance I can think of where I prefer the studio amendments over the director's vision, and it's this preference that has kept me from buying the existing BR discs.

Sorry, but Sir David Lean died April 1991 of cancer.

Um, Jon, I'm not sure if you realize this, but my signature line is a quotation from Swimming With Sharks ( http://us.imdb.com/Details?0114594 ). The exchange is a tongue-and-cheek way of depicting Buddy's (Kevin Spacey) ideals on who great filmmakers are. I highly recommend this movie if you're into scathing dark comedies.


And now, back to the regularly scheduled Blade Runner thread ...

Workprint! Workprint! Read the book "Future Noir" and you'll see that the so-called "Director's Cut" is a cheap *******ization of what RS wanted, a restoration based on the original workprint. That means restoring some narration and the iron lung scene, fixing the bad body doubles, and various other edits.


Of course, who knows what WB will actually put out.

BTW, I just noticed that my last post was automatically censored. Can I state for the record that I object? B-A-S-T-A-R-D-I-Z-A-T-I-O-N is standard english, not profane or obscene, and is the correct word for the situation I was describing. Fight censorship! And, free Nepal and stuff...
