  1. The only good version of this movie is the 4 hour fan edit which includes some cutting room floor stuff too. It’s more of what Lynch had in mind and blows the new one out of the water.

  2. Pretty much the same was done with “Kin-Dza-Dza!” (“The Soviet Dune”, if you wish), but the cheatsheets were displayed somewhere at the beginning of the film 2 of the series, IIRC.
