Kelly Upset With Planned Movie Edits
Hollywood director RICHARD KELLY is furious after learning distributors plan to cut one hour of footage from his latest movie SOUTHLAND TALES. Kelly's follow-up to his cult hit DONNIE DARKO received a disastrous reception from critics at the Cannes Film Festival in France earlier this year (06). And the 31-year-old now has no idea of American audiences will ever get to see the movie as he intended it to be seen. He tells Hotdog magazine, "What's disappointing, frustrating is that now I don't know that Southland Tales will be seen in the United States. "Maybe it will, but potentially it could be shown with almost an hour of it missing. I don't quite know what that film is. "It was intended to be this epic LA story. I just don't know if I have the energy anymore. "I tried. I tried. And hopefully they'll (the fans) get a chance to see it at some point."
