Envelope Directors Roundtable: 'The scene I had to cut'

January 20, 2010 |  7:00 am

Film fans like to watch movies and opine on what should or shouldn't have made the final cut. But sometimes a movie's harshest critic is the person who made it. In this clip from our Envelope Directors Roundtable, filmmakers reveal the scenes they loved but had to let go. Whether it's a startling group-therapy moment in "Precious" or a Hans Landa bon mot in "Inglourious Basterds," these scenes are often strikingly good -- and yet they'll never see the light of day.

"(N)ever see the light of day"? Surely you meant to say "look for them on the DVD or Blu-ray"...

PLZ upload the whole thing already! Thank U!
