Dr. Sapirstein just released his new fanedit: Diabolique: Alternate Cut
The remake of Clouzot's 1957 masterpiece "Les Diaboliques"
- now starring Academy Awards nominees Sharon Stone and Isabelle Adjani - is presented here in a significantly revised alternate cut which follows a "less is more" principle.
From Dr. Sapirstein:
"The film is presented in a carefully restored black and white - as per the director's original intent - and is bereft of 23 minutes of weak and largely useless material. Inane dialogue, fruitless sub-plots and gaping holes in the story have been removed to present a more intense and potent thriller.
The ludicrously over-the-top ending has also been removed and replaced with a much more blunt ending which is more in keeping with the original Clouzot version."
