The 25 Greatest Director's Cuts According to Yardbarker

There are numerous reasons why directors don't get it right the first time. Generally, it's a money issue, which is a time issue, which is filmmaking in a nutshell. But sometimes it's more complicated than that. Sometimes, you're working with a brilliant, uncompromising auteur who's unwilling to comprise on his strong, clear vision. Other times, you're working with a drunken reprobate who also happens to brilliant and uncompromising, and may or may not have a small arsenal of firearms in his trailer.
The latter conundrum hasn't been an issue since Sam Peckinpah bellied up at the big wet bar in the sky, but that doesn't mean directors have forgotten how to fight. Every year we hear about massive creative clashes and tragically scuttled cuts. Occasionally, these cuts make it to theaters or home video. In honor of Francis Ford Coppola's third recut of "Apocalypse Now," here are 25 of the best auteurist revisions.
