Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ★★★★

Apparently in the rough cut there was a scene during the ticket hunt where, in the Himalayas, a mountain-climber, the last of his group, comes before a lone monk and asks him what the meaning of life is but before awnsering, the monk asks for a Wonka bar; the only food this climber has on himself. He give the monk the bar and the latter opens it only to find no ticket and in response he says “life...is a disappointment.” Apparently a psychiatrist knows the audience thought this was “too realistic” and they cut it out. Yes. This scene was too far, not the tunnel, not the fucking turbine, but this.
