All the home video releases were a version cut to ribbons and altered with alt. footage and for years the director’s cut was unavail...until now. The difference is like night and day.
Perfect movie for a sunny day rewatch at MOMA with easily shocked elderly people gasping behind me. I really love that Altman delegated Tim Robbins (usually not a fan) to be the one hyper-unleashed, caricaturish Altman character performance driving the movie. I don’t know the reasons why JJL and Chris Penn’s SHORT CUTS characters would keep a dreary “All Shook Down” promo poster in their bedroom but maybe this hopelessly sad detail is a total stroke of wiseass genius from the hip art dept.
