    I just saw this version last night in a theatre. It was advertised as "fully uncut, with new translation." It's APPEARED to be about 3:45, and had a good deal more language. Translation was new by Aley and Hoatz-something, I forget the name. This isn't the same version as on the Criterion dvd, is it? Can someone enlighten me? Who did the Criterion subtitles? I want to buy this dvd, but I'd like to have the cut I saw in theatres. Also, is the criterion re-issue really 203 minutes instead of 207 minutes?

    Regards, Nathan
