I have seen the director's cut, and am familiar with the scenes you have
described. However, given that these scenes do not resolve any of the
other questions that I posed, they seem to me to be grafted on to the
body of the film, as opposed to embodying the film's thematics. In my
view, this does not make the film more interesting. It merely contributes
to the film's inconsistencies.
