His in-your-face shooting style creates poetry and a bridge to understanding this sad schizophrenic man’s attempts at finding his daughter while maintaining his tenuous hold on reality. There’s only one extra but it’s a doozy — Steven Soderbergh’s alternate cut. It’s a complete reshuffle with a different flavor and pacing that distances viewers from Keane’s quest. You don’t find out he’s searching for his daughter until about 30 minutes in, and by then interest and sympathy for this directionless troubled character has waned. Side-by-side viewing is nonetheless a great study in the art of editing sure to be appreciated by filmmakers, students and cinephiles.
