hi gang,

i hope you guys didn't think this is the only version of KOH. i plan to see only the extended cut instead of wasting time on the cinema cut. here you go:

Could you talk about the idea of doing the longer cut - was it built in to your plans?

You never know. People say "if you knew you were gonna be that much longer, why do you shoot it?" I say you never know. Ever since I did advertising a lot, I would always try and go for more, to squeeze it into the glass. I was always amazed about how much I could finally squeeze into a thirty second commercial. And then a minute was an epic, and a carousella which is like three minutes, was a super epic. Same thing with film, by the time you've finished shooting and you've really been into everything, you've touched up everything in the editing room. You've gone in there and taken little bits from everything.

Is the longer film a different experience?

Yeah, I think the DVD world is a different experience. I think a theatrical audience goes out to see the movie, and I think to a degree, I'm talking about pure dramatic dynamics, there's a tolerance... Do you think operas tend to be a bit long? Do you think theater tends to be a bit long? They tend to be a bit long, they need to be edited. Who thinks that? Who really believes that? Do you think "oh my god is this going to go on for a fourth act?"


He also confirmed an hour longer version will hit on DVD next year.

bow wow wow
