How, and why, would you put your own hand to something that’s already a masterpiece?
The retired director Steven Soderbergh doesn’t have a very good answer, but his edit of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 is a bracing 110 minutes. That means he cut over 50 minutes from the original, and the film’s pacing and even themes have been re-worked and re-imagined. It’s not better, and I’m not even sure it’s good, but it’s certainly interesting.
