Iñárritu cuts 22 minutes of "Bardo" after tepid Venice premiere
Famed writer/director Alejandro G. Iñárritu has gone back to the editing room after his newest film, Bardo, premiered to less-than-stellar reviews at the Venice Film Festival.
The 174-minute cut of the film shown to critics at both the Venice and Telluride Film Festivals was met with mostly negative reviews, with many citing the film as a self-indulgent and narcissistic exercise by the director.
This new 152-minute cut of the film will have its world premiere this week at the San Sebastien Film Festival.
After that, it will be released nationwide in Mexican theaters and debut on Netflix on December 16.
