I'm still waiting for Criterion to re-release Kwaidan.

Is Criterion EVER going to release the complete version of Kwaidan?

Why on Earth did they release a cut version anyways? It goes against everything they stand for. When Criterion releases a DVD, people assume it's the "uncut" version. Unfortunately, this was not the case with Kwaidan.

I sent an e-mail to Criterion, but I got no response.

Again, is Criterion ever going to release the complete, 183-minute version of Kwaidan?

If you want Criterion to release the uncut version of Kwaidan, please send an e-mail to mulvaney@criterion.com.

If you want a  great quality (and fully uncut) DVD of Kwaidan, just pick up the region 2 Masters of Cinema release:

DVD Beaver has a great comparison of a few of the DVD releases:

Since Masters of Cinema has released the uncut version of Kwaidan, I was hoping Criterion would follow.

With the advent of Blu-Ray, we might see an update on this.  I really hope so...

All DVD's contain the uncut version, except the Criterion DVD.  Why?

Btw, if anyone's wondering what the fuss is about, this is an absolutely gorgeous movie. Quite impressive in all contexts.

I haven't heard much about Kwaidan, but I do hate DVDs of classic films that are released cut, with bad image quality, or without extras Hatred

Feh - I remember when Criterion released this (and I bought it) they were crowing about how it was the complete version, since it included the snow witch segment which was usually cut for American audiences.

Feh, I say.

Really?  When did they say that?

I can't believe Criterion would release a cut version.

I hope Criterion will release the uncut version on Blu-Ray.  If they don't, I've lost all hope for them.

Did anybody send an e-mail to Criterion?

If we send them enough e-mails, they might get the idea.
