: If this is MM "definitive vision," his eyesight must be blurred by the initial swirl of media hype surrounding the Insider.
>>My feelings, exactly.
: Most director's cut give you as much as 30 minutes of new footage (heck, Kostner added alomost an hour to Dances with Wolves). We should sue 20th Century Fox for false advertising ("Expanded Directors Edition??") - we'll settle out of court if Mann agrees to provide all Mohican Maniacs at this site with a real expanded version!!
: I guess we'll just have to refer back to the script for extra scenes and nuances, as well as our imaginations....
: (My own revised ending has C & N arriving in time to help Uncas kick some Huron butt, preventing the deaths of U & A. Uncas is just too righteous to die!)
>>Now, Joy...you KNOW the "good always die young!" ;o)
Seriously, don't get too discouraged. It's possible that you might like this version better than *I* did, although your favorite line is definitely gone. My biggest complaint of all was the sound, and I'm hoping I can correct that with the proper settings. As it is...the under the falls scene, which usually sends my 15-year old tabby cat running to hide under the bed, was so quiet, it made no sense for them to be yelling at each other. Weird.
