On the latest issue of Wired, writer Xeni Jardin asked director Steven Soderbergh what major impact technology was having on filmmaking. Then, an established figure finally said it:

"I’d like to do multiple versions of the same film. I often do very radical cuts of my own films just to experiment, shake things up, and see if anything comes of it. I think it would be really interesting to have a movie out in release and then, just a few weeks later say: Here’s version 2.0, recut, rescored."

And there it is. A major filmmaker catching up to the concept of the remix. Is an exciting subgenre of movie sampling that’s unbound by the big screen and the standard 90-120 minute running time close behind? Hip-hop style short films mingling with hip-hop on your iPod. Godfather vs. Scarface on your cell phone. Remember back in the day when "deleted scenes" on DVD was actually satisfying?
