DVD - Film Print Error

According to Buñuel, this particular repetition was even misunderstood by his chief cameraman while the film was being edited, believing it to be a technical error despite the fact that he had shot both versions of the scene himself. But through an absurd technical error on the DVD, attributable to someone having arrived at the same erroneous conclusion as the cameraman, the scene’s repetition has been deleted.
-Buñuel's 'Exterminating Angel' has an entrance scene repeated twice.

Curious Minds

"Most people choose movies that provide exactly what they expect, and tell them things they already know. Others are more curious. We are put on this planet only once, and to limit ourselves to the familiar is a crime against our minds."
- Roger Ebert
