AMMO ON 'DOMINO' - THERE NEVER WAS A 148-MIN CUT!
ASSISTANT EDITOR CONFIRMS WHAT A-LA-MOD HAS BEEN REPEATING FOR MONTHS ON END
https://www.angelfire.com/de/palma/ammotweet.jpg

An assistant editor on Domino who tweets as "Ammo" said on Twitter this morning that "there was never a 148 minute cut of the film or anything even approaching that." Domino was edited by Bill Pankow, and after a bit of scrolling through the IMDB credits for the film, the name Anthony Morone, an assistant editor on the film, seems a good bet as to the identity of Ammo (Olivier Lambrechts is also listed as an assistant editor).

As I first posted on April 4, 2018, sites such as the IMDB and Wikipedia were, at that time, both listing the running time for Brian De Palma's Domino at 148 minutes. We all found out two months later that, according to De Palma himself, Domino had not even been completed until late May of 2018. Both the IMDB and Wikipedia are subject to random user edits, but 148-minutes (which has, in more recent rumors, morphed into 150-minutes) curiously matches that of Brimstone, which also has the precise running time of 148 minutes. Brimstone also stars Guy Pearce and Carice van Houten, and shares some of the same producers as Domino.

Is it bad if I'm reaaaaally enjoying this piece of news? I've so fed up with the 148min-long-footage theory.

That's a relife, with Pankow on editing and the rumor of 148 min cut is now debunked, we know at least the De Palma's artistis vision has not been compromised, or at least to a minumum based on lack of fundings only.

Extensive review by Neil Bahurdar on LETTERBOXD gives detail impressive review. Set-pieces compared to MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE and SNAKE EYES. Impressive split-screen sequence. Negatives, ran out of money to satisfactorily complete film.

after reading certain reviews I believe the producers recut Domino themselves. one reviewer has said it has vintage set-pieces but a muddled narrative with chunks of story missing.

The film has not been recut-- have you guys noticed that Calum Marsh gives the film 4 stars on Letterboxd? This is starting to sound like a typical De Palma film, with widely different opinions.

The question is where are the reviews coming from, as far as I know the movie has not been screened in festivals nor any other place yet, where did these guys saw the movie, as I would pay to see it right now!

 

De Palma has alwyas divided reviews, between his disciples and followers and everybody else. I remember the dumbest review made by one of my highest regarded critics, Ebert, on Snake Eyes, he gave it ONE star! Did he miss De Palma on that one? as he perfectly got him on Femme Fatale when he called it pure cinema and gave it 4 stars!

That Snake Eyes review is a bit baffling. He admits that the opening shot is amazing, then gives it a star rating which implies it couldn't get any worse, when clearly there was something he admired about it. I agree that it starts stronger than it ends, but one star implies it did nothing right, and that's just not the case.

Don't forget Ebert's **1/2 review of The Untouchables!
