2 Where can I find the director's cut of Cinema Paradiso (1988)?
I've been trying to look for it all over but cannot find it. The only cut I can seem to find is the American theatrical, which I have seen already, but want to see this director's cut a lot of people...

The film projectionist warns the boy that the life of film is no life at all, and that he will become isolated from the world as he watches movies 100s of times over.
The shorter version is a more uplifting film about a boy and his surrogate father who creates a love of movies in the boy.
