I saw the cut version on tv and thought it was very good. The restored version makes it one of the best war movies ever. A complaint is about the photography: not as gritty as it should have been, too clear, especially for the european part. I think IIWW movies should be shot b&w. Anyway this gets 9\10.

P.S. About Point Blank: I saw it twice, once in a theatre: Marvin was good (as usual)  but the movie was quite boring.

Smoke Tuco, so you can't bullshit!

Count me in among the likers. Maybe somewhat scattered, but deservedly up there in the 8-something/10 domain. Will have to watch it once more, this time preferably in peace.

Blu-ray on May 16. I'm not sure if it's the theatrical cut or the restored one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/The-Big-Red-One-Blu-ray/ref=%26%2574%2561g%3d%2562l%2575r%2561y%252d016%252d20?SubscriptionId=AKIAIY4YSQJMFDJATNBA&tag=bluray-016-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B00HS6DTTS&ASIN=B00HS6DTTS&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

thedigitalbits has the answer:

We’ve checked with Warner Home Video sources and have confirmed that The Big Red One contains a remastered version of the film’s 113-minute Theatrical Cut in HD and – as a ‘special feature’ – the 169-minute Reconstruction version in SD only as well. That’s official, so FYI and make your plans accordingly.
I guess there's no need for me to buy this, then.

35mm screening coming to MoMA!

The Big Red One: The Reconstruction

2004. USA. Directed by Samuel Fuller. With Lee Marvin, Mark Hamill, Robert Carradine. Fuller’s 1980 magnum opus, a fictionalized account of his World War II experiences with the First Infantry Division from North Africa to Falkenau, was brutally cut by its original distributor. This reconstruction, supervised by the critic Richard Schickel in 2004, restores Fuller’s structure, adds some 40 minutes of new footage, and removes a gratuitous voice-over narration. 35mm. 158 min.



Sunday, August 10, 2014, 2:30 p.m., Theater 1, T1   

Wednesday, August 13, 2014, 4:30 p.m., Theater 1, T1
I think this is absolutely my first chance to see the longer cut on film. Anyway, I'm definitely gonna be there on the 10th. Drink, you in on this?

I am pretty sure I am in.
I've never even heard of the movie till now, but anytime I am recommended a good movie I am happy to check it out. That, plus the fact that I anyway like visiting MoMA every so often to check out the paintings, so yeah, it sounds good. I'll PM you to discuss details :)

I'm not crazy about the shortened version, so this is certainly interesting news.

Yeah, I come if I don't have to work (but I have to) and the flight is less than 800 bucks.

Hey, Drink and I will take you to McSorley's afterwards. That should be worth the 800 (or less) right there!
