The Directors Cut (to bits).,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Picnic At Hanging Rock - The Director's Cut [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
I always loved the film Picnic at Hanging Rock, but Peter Weir seems to be spending time with George Lucas and changing and cutting his films, all this does is shorten it and lessen the impact of the girls loss as well as sidelining more of the other characters, the ending now feels rushed as if they have lost confidence in the audience (maybe he shortened it for the short attention span brigade). Before they ruin the things people love these directors should at least consider releaseing both versions in hi-def so we could at least choose. As I say I love picnic at Hanging rock but this isn't it. Still gets two stars for the beginning though.
