After
a disastrous presentation at Cannes,
Richard
Kelly
‘s
Southland Tales
is finally getting released in November. Presumably an
abbreviated cut, star
Seann
William Scott
agreed the director needed to find the heart of the piece.

"I
saw a bit of the long cut and I thought there were a lot of really cool things
in it," said Scott. "It definitely seemed like it needed to be shortened up a
bit."

Even
in tip top shape, Southland Tales was always going to be a movie that
divided audiences. "I think it’s a movie that you’re either going to love or
you’re going to hate. I think it could be really, really interesting. I think
there’s a chance that half you guys and girls in this room will think it’s
really cool. The other ones are going to think it’s pretentious."

It is
right up Scott’s alley though. "There are some really beautiful things in it.
It’s weird, too."

Southland Tales will finally hit theaters November 9.
