Thick Of It: Full Disclosure, The (Part Two)
So I'm cutting in all non-duplicated footage seemlessly back in to create two feature length films I'm calling 'THE THICK OF IT: FULL DISCLOSURE (PARTS ONE AND TWO)'.
Hopefully I've managed to cut all the material back into appropriate places and maintained the rapid intercutting technique of the original show. I've also tried to maintain the punchline-then-cutaway rhythm by not extending the end of scenes (When the footage could've been used that way) but instead moving the additional footage to the next cut away.
The scene in question, originally featured Jamie revealing a minister had a Gambling problem. In this cut he reveals the minister is a secret swinger (IMO it's a much funnier premise).
(!Warning! Naughty language!)
I enjoyed Part 1 tremendously and this extended edit for Part 2 is just as enjoyable. Running at 23 minutes longer than the DVD special, more than 20 deleted scenes have been added flawlessly to give us the feature length experience. The narrative may not have changed but then it wouldn't, what you get here is a edit that's technically perfect and laugh out loud funny from beginning to end. Both volumes will sit nicely on my shelf with my Complete Series box set.
If you enjoy a bit of political satire then give these a try...... you won't regret it.
