A major flaw,
This review is from: The Exterminating Angel   [DVD] (DVD)
One of Bunuel's best films, even if it could have been even better, if he would have waited ten years to produce it with greater actors and technique. But the problem here is that there are two very important scenes missing: the guests that will be unable to leave the party should have been seen entering the house twice (Yes, it's absurd, but it has a profound link with the fact that they can't leave.) This DVD unfortunately did cut both of the scenes, as if they were an error. Unforgivable.

This comment refers to the existing R2 release. Amazon have lazily linked it to the new criterion release, but the new criterion release does in include the duplicate entry of the guests.

Amazon's laziness in this respect is something to watch for. The same applies to the 2010 restructured Metropolis: ASIN:B0041SMF5A Metropolis [Reconstructed & Restored] (Masters of Cinema) Limited Edition Dual Format Steelbook [Blu-ray]
