A SERBIAN FILM Gets Its U.S. Theatrical Release
One thing that A Serbian Film did well in its festival run was cause a lot of controversy. People either loved it or were appauled by it. I haven't seen it yet but plan on it, but not the watered down version I hear we are getting in the theatrical release here in the U.S.
From the Press Release:
Invincible Pictures announced today the theatrical release date for notorious thriller “A Serbian Film”. On Friday, May 13th, an edited version of “A Serbian Film”, a film that genre vets have repeatedly encouraged audiences NOT to watch, will be released to select theaters throughout North America. An unrated version of the film will be released exclusively on FlixFling.com the same day.
“This is a excellent opportunity for FlixFling to offer something totally exclusive to our growing community,” said Tom Ashley, CEO. “It was always our intention to release this film uncut, but given the recent charges against Sitges Film Festival director Angel Sala, we have decided to release an edited version of the film. We believe this film deserves to be seen as the filmmakers originally intended and hope to be able to release “A Serbian Film” uncut in the future.”
Touted as the most controversial film of all time, called “relentlessly horrifying” by one reviewer, “A Serbian Film” probes the life of Milos, a retired adult film star. Milos is lured out of retirement by a deep-pocketed director seeking to make the ultimate in art-house XXX film. What follows is the most depraved cinematic storytelling of a moral and political allegory ever seen. Consider yourself warned.
