What are the differences between the Theatrical Version and the Director's Cut?

A Masterpiece, 14 November 2004
Author: eer85 from Italy

Only this: check the Final Cut version and you'll discover that most of the flaws for which this movie is criticized are gone. With it's 30 minutes of footage previously cut and no re-dubbing,the story makes sense (of course, because of all the references to art-movies such as Jodorowsky's EL TOPO, some things are still left only to symbolic images)and it doesn't seems to switch to one register to another. Also this version isn't regraded, so the (very fine)cinematography by Steve Chivers (who also did HARDWARE) can really give the taste of a mix between western (Sergio Leone) and horror (I'd say Mario Bava: in a dream sequence, Zakes Mokae even moves as he's on a dolly!). Unfortunately this version isn't the original 2 hours-long cut that Stanly delivered, so some things are missing: for example, in the first murder scene (where, btw, the director has a cameo reflected in a mirror), the Dust Devil was supposed to cut the back of his victim, now instead he just reveals the knife. And some optical effects weren't added since poor Stanley's pocket (he largely produced this new version by himself!) wasn't so large to afford them. But, bypassing this details, the entire movie it's showed to you as the masterpiece it is.
