Director David Fincher presented the director’s cut of his magnificent film Zodiac eight months after the theatrical release at an event hosted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. FSLC associate director of programming Kent Jones interviewed Fincher.
“When we got the version we were happy with, we did one more screening,” said Fincher. “We hijacked people from malls and gave them the power of life and death, and made them Siskel and Ebert.” And due to those screening two scenes were let go from the theatrical version. Those two scenes were the major additions to the Director’s Cut.
