I disliked this when I first saw the theatrical cut. Sorry E, I don't have time to read you review at the moment, but did want to know if the extended cut is worth another viewing.

Personally, I think the extended cut makes a huge difference. Of course, we are talking more odd, quirky conversations which only add to those themes of meaninglessness, fate and death. The extra conversations definitely make the film feel more like a novel. The editing in the theatrical version creates a very disjointed feel, losing much of the plot's point of utterly random coincidences leading to one's demise.
