Comparison between the German DVD released by BMG (uncut, FSK 16)
and the new british Collector's Edition DVD released by Buena Vista/Miramax
The UK-DVD was rated BBFC 18 because of the drug consumption scene.
The time designations relate to the UK-DVD.
The UK-DVD does not contain a cut in the proper meaning of the word, the runtime of both DVDs is identical. The censored scene was reframed so that you can not see how the needle is stabbed into the arm. In comparison to the older UK-versions of the movie the scene was at least not cut out completely.
Length: approx. 3 Sec.Vincent Vega shoots up (0:29:33)
The close-up of Vincent Vega shooting up heroin was "reframed" in the UK-version, meaning that the image section was redefined so you won't see the the needle being stabbed in the arm (which is one of the BBFC's conditions). On the German DVD the scene is completely uncensored.
The shift of the image section is about 3 seconds
