The Criterion Collection aims not only to curate a selection of important films from around the world but also, through the supplemental materials included in our releases, to enhance the viewer’s understanding of movies by shedding light on the filmmaking process itself. One of the most revealing and entertaining ways to interpret what we see on-screen is to get a glimpse of what didn’t make it there. Below, explore our many releases that include deleted scenes and outtakes, some of them—such as those included on our editions of Charles Laughton’s The Night of the Hunter and Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line—quite rare.
