So why was Ridley Scott’s “extended cut” of Kingdom of Heaven not sent out on DVD to Academy members or selected press? It’s only showing at the Laemmle Fairfax…which isn’t a very good theatre, by the way. It should have been booked into a better house in Westwood somewhere. If you’re going to promote a big-budgeted film for year-end Academy Awards consideration (which is what showing the “extended cut” is apparently about), why do it in such a half-assed way?
