Here's something the distributor could do, if they were minded to. Get Camden Council to approve the uncut version of A Serbian Film and show it at the Odeon Covent Garden, which is IIRC the nearest cinema in Camden's jurisdiction to the West End. It was after all Westminster Council who insisted that A Serbian Film be BBFC-vetted before Frightfest could show it.

This is assuming that Camden Council did approve the uncut version. But there is a precedent for this. Before the BBFC finally passed The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (in 1999 - was it really that long ago?), it showed at the same cinema with a Camden 18 certificate.

Uncut screenings of BBFC-cut films with council approval...debates on censorship... It'll be like the 60s and 70s all over again!

Several other scenes however had my ears sweating something rotten.
I agree 100 percent. I was like "That's it?" while the whole last reel for me was a really grim, uncomfortable experience.

One other thing, is it just me or did that guy's dick keep changing size?

The producers of A Serbian Film are making a documentary on the world wide reaction to the film so if anyone wants to get involved, they'll be interviewing audience members at the Prince Charles Cinema this week.

DETAILS HERE

[News] A Serbian Film (UK) in January

Something like this just proves they added the controversial stuff for the headlines. Now they are cashing in on the shock value.

I'd expect no less. Isn't this the guy who went onstage screaming

Ya, thats my point. So much for all his talk about it being a metaphor for how Serbs have been treated since birth.

I think it can be both. It doesn't *need* those scenes in it to still be a metaphor, but it helps get the message across.

WOOKIE!!!! <--- NSFW there's a couple of expletives and urrr some pictures with captions... just my ramblings.

Revolver sent me a bluray copy which surprised me since I was too scared to ask for a review copy... the film did not appeal at all.

I was discussing this and the Human Centipede over Christmas dinner!

Just out of curiosity I'm interested in seeing this uncut.

Is it available anywhere?

Entertaining as always Ducky!

I had no idea they would be selling the uncut version online only. I may well buy it then to support their endeavour, even though it won't be one to re-watch that often!

Is there a link to buy the Uncut version? Is it Blu-Ray?

Cheers,

Lol they're not, it's what I think the bbfc should have allowed since the film uncut actually broke none of the the laws the bbfc are there to protect.

There are rumours that it'll get a region one release uncut BUT Australia have had to cut it and it's looking more and more like the US will have to follow suit

There's only one way to get it uncut at the moment and it ain't legal

I'll fix that... but I think it's something they shoulda done as apparently the film went to lawyers and all sorts to be checked lol

Even if they had some kind of system like the R18 you mention it would be something. I'm not convinced it is *that* important a film to see law changes etc, but it doesn't work as well as an uncut piece, I'm pretty safe at presuming.

r18 is the rating for porn ain't it? Only can be bought in specialist stores... No one knows about it since porn is free on the interweb lol

But if the q&a on the disk is right and the film didn't breach uk law, then we have to ask ourselves why was the film cut?

I totally see where the councils came from because I really don't think I could have stomached some of the scenes in their entirety I still liked the film though but much like Eli Roth and his torture porn, I think the film makers at heart are just proper sick perverts... Lol

They were just classier at presenting the entire package
