Well, he's said multiple times that he conciders the released version to be his directors cut and that all bits removed were done so for a reason.Ice said:Kevin Smith has said there won't be no "Director's Cut" version or anything like that. They'll have the deleted scenes and what not, but nothing special or whatever.
I knew that they gave the movie a "gritty" look (I hadn't actually noticed it), because they mentioned it in the commentary during the donkey scene (I watched the entire movie without commentary, except for that scene, because I figured they'd have some hilarious things to say about such a classic scene).Moony, I don't know if you noticed this when you saw it on a big tv (I didn't until listening to the commentary): all throughout the movie, the colortone/resolution/whatever is sort of a darkened, almost muddy-type look, except for the dance sequence. Starting with the shot of Jay/Silent Bob bobbing their heads in front of the restaurant, they switch to bright, colorful, traditional movie film-look/whatever. Once you know it, it's really cool to see the change. It goes back to its grainy-type look with the shot of Randall's Porch Monkey taped shirt.
