Why make it a trilogy if you dont even want it to be split in half? Makes no sense. I think this is more about the US vs Europe thing right? You guys have to wait longer than us or something.
Well because with 2 films it seems like 2 halves and hence not a complete whole. With 3 films, or a trilogy, there is the adequate divide to be able to ascribe on to any number of those 3 films the status of masterpiece. With 2 films (or two haves) one hesitates to call it as and indeed see it as a whole masterpiece. Think about the Godfather trilogy, many see that as 2 masterpieces and another very good film. With the KB volumes, I haven’t heard very many people hail it as a masterpiece, it seems predominantly because of their inability to see them as a “whole”.
Basically, I would be more than happy for it to be of a length similar to Pulp Fiction. With it being 4 hours, seriously, how many people will even go see it? I know that’s not the point, but it will hurt it’s credibility. As much as I would like to see a QT film 10 hours long, a 2 and half hour film is plenty
