Crazy film, I liked it though. Would be a cool bonus feature on the dvd of blu-ray to watch each story as a standalone
Really? I don't think it'd work at all. The reason the film works so well is because scenes from one story fade into other ones.

I don't think it'd be better that way, just interesting to watch as an option. Like on the Memento DVD you can watch chronologically.

at the very least the dvd should have a cut that follows the novel.

... why? One of the things that's so great about it is how it cuts between all the different stories in the span of a short amount of time so well.

i can't really think of a better reason other than "just because."

did you read the book? it's structured much more simply. it would be interesting to see the film structured the same way. definitely not to replace the messiness of the film, which has its own strengths and weaknesses, but to have the option to see how it would work.

i would almost want to recut it myself, but i wouldn't know what to do when someone talks over another story's scenes.

book structure: 1-2-3-4-5-6-5-4-3-2-1
film structure: 1-2-3-4-5-6-2-5-3-4-1-5-2-6-2-5-3-4-1-5-something like that

I guess what I'm saying is that it probably wouldn't make much sense because of the way it was written, with the pieces cutting between each other. I understand that's what the book is like, but a film is a different beast.

It would be worth a buy if there is a segment with just Tom Hanks' weird portrayal of an English gangster.
