A director with a major track record for big budget hits (Spielberg, Ron Howard, etc.) has the contracted right to edit to any length he chooses. A new director does not. The studio or distributor looks at the film and usually insists it be cut down to conventional length -- regardless what has to go. John Lee had only directed one major film before THE ALAMO, and John Wayne had directed none.
