Oh, OK. I guess I should be grateful they've streamlined the film for us. I've informed Kino, they've now responded to my comment (they say they "can look into the matter"), so I'm done with this.
What you miss is the fact that they remove all his clothes from the room. With the cut on the Kino Blu-ray you are left to wonder why Hope can't just get dressed again and stop running around with a blanket wrapped around him.
FYI, since I haven't gotten a response to the Kino Lorber customer support note I left last week...
At around the 59 minute mark there is about 25 seconds missing compared to the DVD release. It leaves quite a plot hole and basically ruins the scene.
I've been waiting since the 15th and the best I can tell (though my order status doesn't say so) is that something is on back order. The email I got from Kino this morning in response to a recent inquiry said something about a lot of orders and limited stock, and that they were doing all they...
Am I the only one who's having a long wait to get their Kino order shipped? I ordered ten Blu-rays and two boxed sets on October 15, and it's still "processing" on the 26th. Nothing seems to be on backorder, and this wait seems a bit unusual to me.
