Keane, Cut And Re-Cut

I recently signed up for Netflix and the Lodge Kerrigan film Keane was my first choice. It's a film about a young man who wanders through New York's Port Authority bus terminal searching for his daughter who may have been abducted the year before. We're not even sure if he had a daughter because as the film advances we find out that he suffers from schizophrenia. The film has garnered much attention at a number of film festivals and is now available for home viewing. Steven Soderbergh, aka the busiest working film director in the world, is credited as producer on this film but he doesn't stop there. He offeres up an edited version of his own. So what you have is two uniquely different films available on the DVD release. To see the real power of the edit at work check out Keane, both versions. Damian Lewis is raw and intense as the lead character William Keane.

More on Keane and Kerrigan can be seen on Cinematical and IndieWIRE
