I've just found your blog. Nice work.
I saw The New World and as beautiful as it was, I actually did find it too long which detracted from the narrative.
I would applaud a director's cut that actually took an hour out of the movie.

Hi there,
Oh absolutely, an argument could be made that the film feels a little too long, or at least that a longer cut may be too much. However, I'm of the mind that a film can literally be longer without feeling it, and if the editing in a longer cut improves some of the narrative choppiness I'm all for it. But yes, it could also be no improvement at all. (That's not what I've heard from critics who saw the longer cut, though.) I guess we may never know!

Thanks again,
