Taking Lives Unrated dc (a warner title) 8/17/04

Angelina Jolie, Ethan Hawke. Warner, wide 2.40:1/16x9, DD 5.1, $27.95, 8/17/2004. view cover
Supplements: Additional Scenes Four Documentaries ("The Art of Collaboration", "Profiling a Director", "Bodies of Evidence", "Puzzle Within The Puzzle") Outtakes Theatrical Trailer
Synopsis: A psychological thriller, Taking Lives is the story of an FBI agent who becomes involved with her key witness while tracking a prolific serial killer who assumes the lives and identities of the people he kills. She finds herself surrounded by numerous suspects and no one to trust.

surprised that warner decided to go the unrated route knowing that they ususally don't release unrated dvds

Interesting....is this film graphic at all? Possibly NC-17 worthy?

If so,then this is a step in the right direction for Warners.

May be good news for Eyes Wide Shut,The Devils,Cruising,Performance..and anything else they have shyed away from releasing unrated/uncut.

Guess not even Warner could resist pushing some extra Angelina Jolie nudity!

It will probably be a little more nudity and perhaps some more gore. There were a few scenes of Crime scenes that were pretty graphic.

Any unrated version of a DVD with Angelina Jolie in it is worth a buy.

Who could?

I wanted to see this in theaters, but I never got a chance to. I've heard some decent things about it, so I'll definately be checking this one out when the release comes around.

Poor Angelina. She's becoming the queen of "unrated".

I wouldn't get my hopes up... looks to me like this unrated release has more to do with the poor box office takings for this film.

There was an AICN advance review that raved about how the film paraded her wonderful tits around, but the theatrical film supposedly turned out quite coy about the nudity. So this might be one unrated edition that actually delivers on its salacious promises.

I really enjoyed this in theaters... I can see the Unrated version including more Angelina nudity (which is always welcome) and probably a more graphic ending.

Of course this is just my opinion...

Anybody have a pointer to how the unrated cut differs from the 6-minute shorter theatrical release?

Nope, same amount of boobs i remembered from the theatrical version. Maybe a second or two longer sex scene but thats all.

They did add:

Spoiler:
more gore, they showed the dude cutting off his moms head which i didnt see before.

agreed. The sex scene is identical to the one in theaters. Nothing new.
