The real 21: the cuts to My Blueberry Nights


Finally got around to comparing the runtime of the version of Wong Kar-wai‘s My Blueberry Nights that screened at Cannes and Thessaloniki (where I saw it at a public screening after a pitched shout-and-push-fest between a theater manager and the dozens of Greek students lining the stairs) and the version being released next week in New York and LA.
