For what it’s worth, the only version of this film that I have seen so far is a screener of the original European version, which went by the title The Inquiry and still had timecodes and everything. The American version came out on DVD today, and I was supposed to get a copy of it, but it hasn’t arrived yet — so I can’t comment on whether any of the rumoured changes were made to it in the end.
The Final Inquiry — the interview’s up!
