ones I rent have the rating on it, ditto the ones we buy here.
Have I missed something?

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.
