This is rumour control, here are the facts.
I do not hate Nolan. In fact it might surprise people to know that there are Nolan films which I like a lot (INTERSTELLAR; INSOMNIA; THE PRESTIGE; MEMENTO). It's the ones that people seem to think are classics that I regard as excrement, and, because of this, JWfan seems to think that I do not like Nolan.
Regarding BLADE RUNNER, Nolan knows (or, at least, he should) that there are at least 4 commercially-released versions of the film. The version seen in America is not the same as the version seen in Europe. The DC is different to those two versions, and the FC is different still.
All I want Nolan to do is to clarify which version of the film he prefers. To say "I prefer the theatrical version" doesn't cut it (no pun intended).
Now, I wouldn't mind if Nolan was some 20 year-old spotty, four-eyed, geek, doing some kind of media studies course at Solihull Uni., or somesuch place, when he said this. If he did, I'd pay him on the head, and tell him to read "Future Noir". He isn't, of course. He's a very successful, and much respected film director. Because of this, he really should have a broader knowledge-base. My goodness; from his remarks about BLADE RUNNER, it would appear that the average JWfan (if there is one ) knows more about the film than him.
If he'd said "I prefer the original European cut", that would suffice, but he didn't.
Nolan works in the film business, and, because of this, he should know better.
