The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden

‘The Handmaiden’ theatrical cut: 10/10 
Still an amazing movie with beautiful cinematography, an awesome score, and is overall is a highly entertaining thriller that I enjoy a lot. 

‘The Handmaiden’ extended cut: 8/10
It’s pretty clear why this is an “extended” cut because what it adds is just more scenes to movie that make a bit too long and doesn’t give the perfect pace of the theatrical. What’s also disappointing is that the beginning especially rearranges the structure of scenes that leaves the emotional impact of the movie less satisfying. It’s still good as it still has the rest of the movie which is still great. Just didn’t really work as well as the theatrical for me.
