Today let's talk about how Harvey Weinstein destroyed one of the most beautiful movies.

今天让我们谈谈哈维·温斯坦如何摧毁了一部最美丽(之一)的电影。

In 2000, Matt Damon starred in a movie called All the Pretty Horses, which was directed by the famous director Billy Bob Thornton and was produced by Harvey Weinstein's company.

在2000年,马特·达蒙(Matt Damon)出演了一部电影《 All the Pretty Horses》(骏马),该电影由著名导演比利·鲍勃·桑顿(Billy Bob Thornton)导演,由哈维·温斯坦(Harvey Weinstein)的公司制作。

The original movie was over three hours long and Weinstein demanded the movie to be cut down to two hours and to replace the original music score with completely different music.

原始电影的时长超过3个小时,Weinstein却要求将电影剪至2个小时,并用完全不同的背景音乐替换原始音乐。

Rumor says this cut was a payback to Thornton's refusal to cut his other movie Sling Blade.

谣言说,这次剪片是温斯坦进行的报复,因为桑顿拒绝剪他的另一部电影《吊索之刃》(Sling Blade)。

When they released the two hours version of the movie All the Pretty Horses, it received bad reviews. it's currently only 35% on rotten tomatoes.

这两个小时版本的《骏马》发表后,收到了差评。目前只有35%的烂番茄评分。

However, the original movie is supposed to be breathtakingly beautiful. So, later on, Thornton tried to release the full version of the movie in a director's cut.

然而,原始的完整电影据说是惊人的美丽。因此,桑顿后来试图以导演剪辑版的形式发行电影的完整版。

But, feeling so hurt by the initial cut, the original music score composer Daniel Lanois refused to release a music license to Thorton. (All about that copyright!) And because the original movie was actually developed around the original music score, the director’s cut cannot be released without Lanois’s music.

但是,最初的背景音乐乐谱作曲家丹尼尔·拉诺瓦(Daniel Lanois)受到最初被剪的伤害,因此拒绝授予索顿音乐许可。由于原始电影实际上是紧绕原始背景音乐制作的,因此如果没有Lanois的音乐,导演的完整剪辑版就无法发行。

And that's why we will probably never see the full version of the epic western movie - All the Pretty Horses.

这就是为什么我们可能永远也看不到完整版的史诗西方电影《骏马》的原因。
