The United States gets no respect. First, they screen Rio in a bunch of other countries first, and now we’re finally seeing the film that made seasoned Fantastic Fest attendees openly weep, scared the British into cutting four minutes of it, and got the director of the SITGES Festival charged with exhibiting child pornography. Finally!
Twitch is reporting that the highly controversial Serbian Film will see select theaters on May 13th, wearing its NC-17 rating proudly (although apparently it’s still been slightly edited). It’ll also hit VOD via FlixFling with five more minutes of goodness (although even it will have two minor cuts that add up to less than a minute). So, we may never see what Fantastic Fest audiences saw, but we’ll see most of the full Monty.
Thus far, the film has been a boogie man as people have talked more and more about it, but here’s a trailer showcasing the look and feel of the film without giving anything away:
Everyone I know who has seen it rants and raves about the content of the movie, so I had no idea what it might look like. This is fantastic – like David Lynch moved to a country that would allow him to do everything his dark little heart desires on screen.
Mark your calendars for May 13th, wear a poncho, and staple your eyes open.
