A scene with a doctor and the mother at the apartment right after Dannyís first vision.

No thatís the version youíre getting. The EU version cuts all that stuff out.

The long version is pretty isolationist to me.

About 25 minutes worth of material is missing from the shorter (European Cut) version. Thatís quite a bit of material. Now you know why I was so excited to finally get to see the longer (US Cut) version.

Cutting it to speed up the runtime is criminal and I firmly believe Kubrick hated every minute of it. If the film got critical acclaim from the start Iím 99.9% positive that a Euro cut wouldnít even exist.

Itís essentially just a damage control cut.

People in here not realising the power Kubrick had

If he wanted one cut and the other gone, shit would be gone overnight.
Are we to only have the cut EWS from now on?

And I fail to see why they cannot have us see both cuts.

This duality with a different cut on each site of the big pond is part of the history of The Shining and that was maintained for the whole lifetime of Kubrick and ever since.

Having one cut eliminated just takes away from The Shining. I cannot see why anybody could be satisfied with that solution.

He did exercise that power with the hospital scene. Sending a telegram to all the projectionists to cut it out early into the U.S. theatrical run, then having somebody from the studio catalogue the discarded clip, and returned to the studio to be destroyed.
And yet, the US Cut and EU Cut remained unique to their regions on home video for decades now, could be he was fond of both cuts for different reasons (much like I am, if we're all still picking sides over this).

Wasn't he dead when WB added the uncanny valley CGI people to the orgy?
