Once A Thief - Director's Cut

The sleeve of the commercial videotape. The list price is $14.99, but you can often find it for $12.99 if you look around. Or you can rent it. The title is John Woo's ONCE A THIEF. Some stores file it under J, some file it under O. Check the "Action" section.

There's also a DVD version that sells for about $11, which includes some extra "behind the scenes" stuff.

There are about 12 minutes of additional material in the "Director's Cut" of ONCE A THIEF. The chandelier scene is much longer. There's a bit where Mac tries to bite Victor's finger. And the ending is slightly different. There's a part where Li Ann tricks Mac and Victor into holding hands, and some of the dialog that was in the aired version is cut out (the part where Li Ann tells them she actually hates roses, for example).

One of the scenes in the "Director's Cut" that wasn't in the version aired on television.
