Comparison between the R-Rated Version, taken from the German Collector's Edition by Universal and the uncensored first edition from Universal.
While the first edition from Universal contains the uncensored international version, the censored US Master has been used for the Collector's Edition released in 2006. In the US the movie has always been slightly censored in cinemas as well as on VHS, Laser-Disc and DVD. This was deemed necessary to avoid the infamous X rating since the NC-17 rating did not yet exist in 1990. However, I am fairly sure that today the movie would receive the R rating without any problems.

In Great Britain and France the uncensored Master has been used for the Collector's Edition while in the Netherlands only the censored version has been released.
