| SEE THE DIRECTOR'S CUT
Two versions of London Fields are currently playing in theatres. The film most theatres are showing is the producer's cut, but select theatres are showing the director's cut instead.

It's amazing how two different edits of the same film can make such different movies. Yesterday I saw the producer's cut of London Fields and today I saw the director's cut, and wow THE DIRECTOR'S CUT IS SO MUCH BETTER! Why isn't this one the main cut? Here the bad CGI'ed skies are substituted for tension, mystery, emotion, and a plot that's easier (plus more interesting) to follow; as well as a whole new score and different takes that bring out better performances from the actors. Every emotional beat is so much more powerful, which makes the mystery of who will kill Nicola Six that much more suspenseful and engaging.

THIS is the version of the film that should be playing everywhere. The producer's cut honestly shouldn't even exist; it just doesn't add anything to the film. It's no wonder the director sued the producers over this. According to him the "main" cut released is a cut he hasn't been involved in for over four years.

If you had any intrest in seeing London Fields I would 100% recommend seeing the director's cut, and if you liked the producer's cut then you'll love this one even more! It's still not a perfect film, but THIS one is more entertaining, engaging, suspensful, and overall just a better film. I really hope both cuts are released on the DVD to compare them even better; I find the whole thing so interesting.

Trivia

Director Mathew Cullen filed a lawsuit against the producers of this film in September 2015, claiming that they engaged in "fraudulent efforts" to revise the movie without his knowledge. The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against producers Chris Hanley and Jordan Gertner, as well as Muse Productions and Nicola Six Ltd. In addition to damages, it seeks a declaration that the producers have no right to use Cullen's name to promote the movie without his consent. According to the lawsuit, the producers interjected elements into the movie that "include incendiary imagery evoking 9/11 jumpers edited against pornography, as well as juxtaposing the holiest city in Islam against mind control. No crew or cast member signed up for this, nor did plaintiffs." The lawsuit contends that none of the "revisionary elements" appear in the script. The lawsuit claims that producers breached their agreement by refusing to pay him full compensation, refusing to provide three cuts and three public screenings of the movie, and refusing to produce the movie as a DGA film. It also cites "failure to provide funding needed to properly produce the film." Cullen claims that Hanley gave him assurances that he "would have freedom to make the film without interference from them."


Quotes

Samson Young: They used to worry about the kind of world they were bringing their child into. But when their prayers were answered, they worried about what kind of child they were bringing into the world.


Alternate Versions

There's a noticeable difference in the way that Samson Young prints and presents his manuscript at the end, to the dead body of Nicola. The producer's cut establishes a clearer sense with more up-front photography of Samson finishing and printing his work, and then carefully placing it on Nicola's body with the note. The director's cut conveys all of this, but in a more ambiguous way due to the choices in shot selection and pacing.
