Let me ask a dumb question: How much better is the longer cut than the 165-ish minute one?

Some guy there is saying that the restoration is better than the Criterion in spite of the black levels. Frankly I love my Criterion BD and find the print quality incredible, so certainly won't be double dipping for that reason. I am however very interested in Tornatore's documentary.

Never watched the shorter one (although it is actually included on the Criterion release)

I can't recall now what you lose in the shorter version (Delon and Cardinale fooling around in the deserted palace, maybe? The visit from the government official?), but the only reason to watch the 165-ish one is for Lancaster's self-dubbed audio. The longer cut with the Italian dub is the way to go.
