netflix does not have it; do i pretty much have to wait indefinitely or is another way to see it somehow
Look it up in www.stagevu.com if you’re ok with it.
I saw it on Netflix in Nov., but it doesn’t seem to be there anymore.
i noticed that too. it was in my queue for a bit, and I hadn’t yet watched it, and now, damn, it’s gone.
on stagevu, is the title shot meant to be shaky, or is someone filming a screening of it
It’s meant to be shaky. He does the same thing in Dancer in the Dark.
I have a VHS you can borrow whenever I get back up to New Hampshire….
Thank you McBean, but the fact that it’s a region 2 DVD may be a problem
Maybe you can use VLC with an appropriate region-free drive to watch it.
The R1 disc should be easy enough to find used if you’re willing to go that route. Looks like it can be had for around $18 total @ Amazon.
^ The Region 1 R-Rated Version is missing explicit shots cut to obtain the R rating.
To put it simply if you’ve seen a Region 1 Breaking the Waves you have not seen von Trier’s original cut.
^^^How much longer is Von Trier’s cut then?
I’m surprised there is even a thread about this. Even my local Video Ezy(the Australian equivalent of Blockbuster) has a copy :-)
You can watch the movie or down six AMBIEN… the end result will be the same.
The director’s cut of the film, featuring explicit shots removed from the U.S. version for ratings purposes, is available on Criterion laserdisc.
Normal Run Time- 159 minutes
Director’s Cut-153 Minutes
Yeah, it’s been speculated on that Breaking the Waves was going to turn up on Criterion again. Seems reasonable with The Element of Crime, Europa, and Antichrist already in the Collection.
Maybe we’ll get a two for one when Criterion announces Antichrist. Two von Trier’s being relased would be very nice.
@David: Ha! I like that one. It’s true.
Antichrist on Criterion? Is this confirmed yet? I’d much rather see Von Trier’s Epidemic on Criterion.
I found Breaking the Waves used for like 9 bucks a couple months ago.
well, it’s out of print, so you could just buy it off amazon or something. I did that and then someone I loaned it to broke the disc on accident.
-Antichrist on Criterion? Is this confirmed yet?-
How shrug inducing.
Here’s to hoping Breaking the Waves joins the collection in the next couple years.
I do seem to remember the Criterion forums mentioning something about getting the rights for more von Trier movies that weren’t Antichrist.
i downloaded that ish
Yeah I downloaded it and watched it with English subtitles for no reason
It’s on netflix instant now.
So, the director’s cut is shorter? Anyone know what gets excised?
scratch that, I was thinking the five obstructions for some reason.
