My bad regarding the post-wedding comment, I guess that’s Cimino’s fault. I agree that you don’t technically need the scene of Michael/Stan earlier confrontation, it adds context that there is some tension between the characters but like you said, the cause of Michael’s outrage is the gun being pointed, so that’s a fair point.
I believe I have the 1080p version. I suspect that the audio level issue that I had is from the original, as it occurred even during scenes where I did not see any cuts. Could just be something on my end.
