Directed by Dagur Kári
Starring: Brian Cox, Paul Dano, Isild Le Besco
Brian Cox stars as Jacques, the curmudgeonly owner of a gritty New York dive bar that serves as home to a motley
assortment of professional drinkers. Jacques is determinedly drinking and smoking himself to death when he meets Lucas
(Dano), a homeless young man who has already given up on life. Determined to keep his legacy alive, Jacques deems
Lucas is a fitting heir and takes him under his wing, schooling him in the male-centric laws of his alcoholic clubhouse: no new
customers, no fraternizing with customers and, absolutely no women. Lucas is a quick study, but their friendship is put to the
test when the distraught and beautiful April (Isild Le Besco) shows up at the bar seeking shelter, and Lucas insists they help her out.

Unfortunately, I think that is the old Blade Runner Director's Cut that was aired by HD-Net years ago, rather than the new version which is actually what the Director wanted to release in 1982 (the first Director's Cut was constrained by legal and technical issues).

I like many things about HD-Net, but so far they have a record of zero on airing the "what the director wanted" versions.

PS I do find the argument in favor of Theatrical Version is reasonable - "I want to see again the same movie I saw with that hot chick who never went out with me again." But in this case, it is not that version either !
