What’s different about the Uncut version of Infinity Pool, you ask? It’s mostly snippets of graphic sexual imagery that was cut to achieve an “R” rating for theatrical release.
Alexander Skarsgård explained to ComicBook.com, “There are a couple of frames in the orgy scenes and in the psychedelic… like when they’re doing the icky drug, that have been… [trimmed down]. But again, it’s a few frames here and there.”
Brandon Cronenberg said in a new statement released by NEON, “I like being put in a position where you are destabilized when you’re watching a film. I think that kind of art is more transformative, taking you to places that might be difficult but also that allow you to engage with aspects of your brain that you might not in a day-to-day way.”
Mia Goth (Pearl) stars alongside Alexander Skarsgård in Infinity Pool.
In the film, “While staying at an isolated island resort, James (Alexander Skarsgård) and Em (Cleopatra Coleman) are enjoying a perfect vacation of pristine beaches, exceptional staff, and soaking up the sun. But guided by the seductive and mysterious Gabi (Mia Goth), they venture outside the resort grounds and find themselves in a culture filled with violence, hedonism, and untold horror. A tragic accident leaves them facing a zero tolerance policy for crime: “Either you’ll be executed, or, if you’re rich enough to afford it, you can watch yourself die instead.”
Meagan Navarro wrote in her review for Bloody Disgusting, “While more accessible and linear than the filmmaker’s previous effort, it’s no less compelling, audacious, and extremely violent.”
“Cronenberg merges body horror and sexuality in increasingly bizarre, hallucinatory ways that push the boundaries of the film’s R-rating,” Meagan’s review continues.
