Only a few days before this years most controversial movies hits stores and online retailers. It’s also available direct from REVOLVER ENTERTAINMENT.
After the furore online and in the mainstream press, it’s finally time for those whose haven’t had the chance to see it at the recent screenings to watch it for themselves and make their own minds up. Is A Serbian Film really the most extreme film ever to recieve an official release in this country? I’m sure that’s a debate that will continue but one thing both supporters and detractors of the work can say is this, The apperance of A Serbian Film on the horror scene has not been dull. From cancelled festival screenings and panicky Tabloid articles (not to mention the recent re-emergence of the term Video Nasty and the demonisation yet again of our movies on TV news, making the same tired connection between owning horror movies and senseless murder… Will these hacks never learn?) to the constant back and forth on internet forums both film and otherwise, as fans and the appalled made their cases for and against.
A Serbian Film teeters precariously on the edge of acceptable taste and, for some viewers, the film didn’t so much stumble over the cliff into untouchable taboo as take a running jump off it, but for others it bravely pushed at cinematic taboos with good purpose, in an attempt to rattle the audience and make it sit up and take notice. Whatever side of the fence you’re on, the controversy alone has made the movie one of the important films of 2010 and, with the imminent home video release, it’s going to cause more ripples in 2011 and beyond…
Happy New Year!
