Matt’s list is spot on. I’ll add that the UK DVD of IM Sang-soo’s
<그때 그사람들> ‘The President’s Last Bang’ has the restored cuts
at beginning and end, and they really do make a difference.
(Lee man-hee’s ‘The Road to Sampo’ has a ‘happy end’ ending insisted on
the producers to get past the 1970s censors. Almost interesting in its
On KOFA DVD.)
