Brief answer:
Sometimes in theatrical releases, scenes are cut out by the distributor for
various reasons...
to get a less restrictive rating, for example. Directors may not like
this.
Since videos are unrated, subsequent video releases can carry the
previously cut
scenes which the director deems essential.

Subject: Director's Cut question

Can someone please explain what is meant by the term "Director's Cut"?
How is this different from a non-director's cut version of a video?

I apologize if this was discussed before (I think it was, but I just
don't remember.)

Thanks for your help.
