I'd not seen the film until this director's cut, so I could live with the changes.

But if I was a fan of the original, I'd go apeshit if the film I loved suddenly broke into comic strip animation.

I'll second that! Watched it this afternoon.Yes there are a couple of moments in the film where the contrast and colour is different from previous versions but everyone on the net was talking like it was the end of the world.I can live with it,Suspiria has certainly never looked or sounded better.I could have lived without those extra features though.Film analysis isn't really my thing.Give me a good old fashioned making of anyday.

Never watch it then.I hope someday they see sense and release the original on blu-ray though.It's not like it would have been hard to include both versions on the disc. :suspicious:

That's the problem when directors dry up and can only use their dwindling creativity on their back catologue.

Just in regards to Suspiria: I think the commentary track is very good, because Alan Jones and Kim Newman are both excellent and know how to talk about films in a way that doesn't sound like self-masterbatory indulgence, ie. it's less about their creative interpretation and more about the film's place in terms of genre and history, etc. Some of the other 'analysis' doesn't fare so well imo.

I am and I did. I loved the film and the DC is nothing short of a travesty. :ack:

Well said Vince.I can understand what Hill was trying to do by reinforcing the comic book aspects of the film but he failed completely and interrupted the flow of several scenes in the process.The movie was pretty much perfect the way it was.

Just watched the classic ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST on BR.
It looked absolutely stunning.

A perfectly cast and moving all time classic.
