I finally had time to watch it. Firstwatched theatrical and felt about the same as I always have and that wasn't much. Then watched the ending of the intended cut and fell in love with it. That ending is brilliant and the reprise as Oz called it of the song Audrey sings as she is dying is beautiful and heart breaking. It's been so long since I watched the theatrical that I forgot how it ended and I was thinking It was very much like the love conquers all version of Brazil. Then during the Dir cut commentary Oz said the Person who did the special effects work here also did the effects work Brazil. I really would have liked a more extensive feature on the plant because it was, to me Some of the best puppetry work I have ever see in a movie. The movements of Audrey 2 synced with Levi was perfect. The only way I figured they could get the mouth and head to move the way it did was to record In regular speed then speed up the film to make it move at normal speed. It was clearly not stop motion or animated so there didn't seem to be anyother way to do it. So they would have to record Levi talking or singing slowly too. Finally listening to the commentary Oz did this to some extent but he also recorded at a slower frame rate then sped it up to look normal. Anyway loved it.
