Haha Rose :) Stop saying sorry for such things. Thunder and I are just wallowing in self-pity ^^ And it's not so dramatically. Not for me. I'll survive it. Not everything we post here is so serious^^

Sorry for the late entry...... I cant even bring myself to watch it. Some things are just abit too close to home, though I am sure that it was an excellent production.

This may have been asked already so apologies if I missed the thread. My friend has recommended that I see this after all and I wondered if anyone knows where I could purchase a copy of the DVD.

Thanks
Roseanna

This sounds like an extremely compelling production. I hope sometime that I am able to watch it, though I know it would definitely be one to watch alone, without distraction, just to get the real feel of it.

Judging just from the commentary in this thread, it would most likely make me cry, and I would not 'like' it, but not every movie out there is for pleasure.

Scars film clip online

Post by SeattleMel » Wed Nov 07, 2012 12:41 am

Like many late arrival fans, I haven't been able to put my hands on the film Scars. There is a DVD copy on file in one UK college library that I could point a sympathetic Brit at, if they felt inclined to make a copy for someone they don't know halfway across the world.

No? Okay well, until that day comes, I ran across this clip. It is about 6 minutes of his performance as Chris. http://www.anothertongue.com/videos/scarsweb.flv Better than nothing!

It's from the site http://www.anothertongue.com/artist/jason-isaacs where there are other voice work examples for commericals, etc.

Wonder if they'd quote me a price for a 30 second voice mail message or maybe something more along the lines of HAL 9000 who greets me when I walk in the door. ::rofl

Wow. Thanks, SeattleMel.
Gah! I knew it was going to be good, and that just proves it. Now they just need to release that silly DVD for us. How frustrating! Gah!

For those who have not seen Scars - I might be able to make you a DVD from a hard disk recording I have of Scars.

Scars is totally unlike anything Jason has ever done before. He's played villains, but none of them were real. This guy is real, and is one of the scariest individuals I have ever seen. It's hard to remember that it's Jason, and not a real criminal. But even so, fleetingly he reveals his vulnerability. He was a victim of violence himself when younger, and that partly explains the way he turned out (though of course it is not an excuse for the extreme violence he was responsible for). Don't watch it if you are a delicate flower, and easily offended by bad language, because just about every other word starts with C.

Genevieve O'Reilly plays Chris's wife (she was also with Jason in The State Within).

If you are interested, please PM me, and I will see what I can do.

Edited to add:
Ladies I am so sorry to get your hopes up, but I have been let down by technology. I have a hard disk recorder that is also supposed to copy the recording to DVD. However, the DVD burner seems to have given up the ghost, and checking online it seems it’s a common problem with that model, and no solution was offered that I could see. If I ever find a way to make the copies, I will post again to that effect. I have PMed those people who contacted me directly.

It's kinda I don't know the word, but whatever Jason's character, and I DO mean WHATEVER, he acts the same around kids. The man is great with kids...and thanks SeattleMel for finding these 6 minutes of treasure. LN

I just wanna ask if someone have any idea, where to see, or to get this movie? Was there any update in this subject?
I was looking for it everywhere (ebay, amazon, other pages about JI movies), but didn't find anything more, than this 6 minutes...
I will be eternaly grateful for some info, how to get a copy of it.
