Is the NYNY the original Scorsese long cut, or the version currently available on old crappy rental copies?

It should be the 2 hr. 47 min. version.

Color and Kundun are Disney/Touchstone. Cape Fear is Universal. His other films not supersized are Paramount and Columbia. No, Casino is not part of a box set.

on amazon they list the box as a four disc set but mac posted details that said the raging bull collector's edition IN that boxset was a 2 disc. is the amazon information incorrect. is there actually 5 discs in that set?


It's five discs, yes.

Thank you.
