Steven Soderbergh, under his old editing pseudonym “Mary Ann Bernard”, has recut Michael Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate:
As a dedicated cinema fan, I was obsessed with Heaven’s Gate from the moment it was announced in early 1979, and unfortunately history has shown that on occasion a fan can become so obsessed they turn violent toward the object of their obsession, which is what happened to me during the holiday break of 2006. This is the result.
One of the tracks that made me a true believer in hip hop. Extraordinary even today.
