Been working on a few separate projects. Just popped in the "Last of the Mohicans" DVD .... when I unwrapped it, there was a slip of paper that reads:

This movie has been re-edited by Michael Mann. It is his definitive vision of the film. In order to create it, certain shots had to be lengthened, resulting in a momentary jump in the image.

What they mean is this:

We couldn't fit the director's cut of the movie in the space alotted by a single layer on a DVD, and we were too stupid/lazy to find a good transition point to refocus the laser for the layer switch.

Because I really doubt a "momentary jump in the image" is what the directory's "definitive vision" of his film contains.
