Anyone seen this DVD and comment on the content and extra features, if any? I heard that they put in a few extra minutes not in the theatrical version. Know what those scenes are?

Thanks

I saw this as a rental from Netflix a few months ago. The overall quality was good but the extras may have consisted of a trailer and isolated music score. Hmmm, I just looked this up on IMDB and noticed that the version had 2 things I was unaware of one I enjoyed and the other I didn't know: 1 its a "more explicit version" than what we saw in theaters and there is a hidden menu. Guess which part this Shue fan enjoyed? Worth watching and worth owning IMHO

It looks like 3 extra minutes 1:11 vs 1:08

I guess it's worth watching! It is one of the 5-6 best films of the 1990s.

The performances by Cage and Shue are the best performances in 10 years or so.

The overall acting is simply superb.

Superb script, acting, direction, photography, etc. makes Leaving Las Vegas a superb film.

This film is great. I had heard that transfer is really washed out so I was scared of buying it though.
