Blu-ray.com has POSTED their review of Invincible Pictures' "Unrated" North American release of Sdrjan Spasojevic's genre-destroying, critic-dividing and all around baby-f*cking epic A SERBIAN FILM/SRPSKI FILM. I won't fault Jeffery Kaufmaan for blasting the film a new asshole and calling it repellent, pretentious bullshit; he's neither the first nor the last to come to this conclusion, and while it may not be my own opinion I do fully understand that this is a film mathematically designed to create this violent reaction in a large number of people... in effect, the film is a trap and he walked right the fuck into it. Can't blame him for that any more than I can blame a komodo dragon for getting stuck between fence posts after eating a belly full of sweet, delicious goat.
In the end there are no bonus features - not even those brief director interviews the UK release got. The "Limited Packaging" is a slipcase over the keepcase, wow, yippie. 2.0 stereo audio, despite every other DVD release on the planet featuring the original 5.1 mix... but none of that really matters, does it? There's been talk of the film getting censored for its inevitable US release for some time now, and thanks to Jeffery being a clever enough reviewer to list the US cut's runtime, we've finally hit our moment of truth...
"UNRATED" USA BLU-RAY: 01:41:57
UNCUT NORDIC BLU-RAY: 01:43:46
Assuming the US release begins with the Contrafilm logo and ends with the original Croatian film credits, that's a grand total of 1 minute and 49 minutes worth of cuts... depressing, but not entirely shocking. I'll eagerly await the Schnittberichte.com censorship report, but already having an uncensored copy myself I don't really "need" Invincible Pictures' release anyway.
So, there we have it. I hate to have to say this, but don't fucking bother supporting this release - if you really want to own an original copy and give Spasojevic and his pals their due... well, good fucking luck. The German, Norwegian and upcoming Dutch releases are uncut, but almost impossible to find these days, and of course none of them have any English subtitles.
