What's fascinating is that many Chabrol movies are pretty much blocked in France by the rightholders, who got money for restoring them about a decade ago but seemingly never did. I'm not sure if those are part of the concerned movies, but at this rate, Kino might get more Chabrol restored than we got in France.

Anyone have the Kino Lorber Blu-ray of They Might Be Giants? I'm wondering whether the re-inserted "supermarket riot" scene is optional during playback. I haven't been able to find anything definitive in any of the reviews. For me, that scene is entirely wrong at that point of the film and diminishes the film overall. It was a wise move to remove it.

I decided against picking it up in the KL sale as I couldn't see watching it if the scene is unskippable. It's an interesting curiosity as a "deleted scene" but that's it.

I seem to recall a poster on the Blu-ray forum saying it was included, might be worth looking at their thread for the film

Thanks. Found the thread. They did mention it was "included" but not whether it could be branched around. Still hunting...

I did find though that there are a number of variant releases of the film.

I've got a copy, and can confirm that the supermarket scene is *integrated* into the main feature. It is NOT offered as a standalone deleted scene, or accessible as an option via branching. Now you know!
