The differences between the theatrical and uncut:
  • The murder of Johnny Boz in the opening scene is more graphic; we see the killer stabbing him in his neck, stabbing him repeatedly in the chest, in the face and we see the ice-pick passing through his nose.
  • The scene where Nick rapes Beth is severely cut in the US version (we see ripping off her underwear and forcing her over the couch, then there's a cut to the two of them lying in bed). In the uncut version Nick pulls down his pants, penetrates Beth from behind and he apparently has an orgasm.
  • The scene where Nick and Catherine make love after going to the disco is longer much more explicit in the uncut version (Nick is seen burying his face between her legs).
Golly,

After reading that I'm not sure whether to take a hot shower or a cold one :P !

After the merger, Lionsgate moved into the old Artisan headquarters at 2700 Colorado Ave in Santa Monica, California (Los Angeles).

If you have any old Artisan releases on dvd, it will list the 2700 Colorado Ave address on the back cover.

Was not the famous leg-uncrossing scene more explicit in the Director's Cut? I remember that being a big talking point when the DC came to home video.
