Peter Christopherson directed the overall "broken movie", but some of the music videos were directed by others.

On December 30, 2006, an unofficial version of the film was released on a DVD disc image and distributed via BitTorrent at The Pirate Bay by an anonymous user ("seed0"), incorporating a noticeable upgrade in quality from "Broken 2.0." This copy of the film includes the Closure video for "Help Me I Am in Hell." Fans have speculated that this version of the film has been sourced directly from the master tapes. Reznor himself may have been the source of this supposed leak along with the supposed Closure DVD leak, as implied by a post on his official blog: "12/21/06 : Happy Holidays! This one is a guilt-free download. (shhhh - I didn't say that out loud). If you know what I'm talking about, cool."

Unofficial DVD Release [halo 5 dvd]

In 1992, Nine Inch Nails released the "Broken" EP. It was followed in 1993 by a short film, roughly 20 minutes in length, known as the "Broken Movie." Filmed and directed by Peter Christopherson, the movie wove Broken's four music videos together via a violent "snuff film," and included its own video for the song "Gave Up" as its conclusion. Due to its extreme graphic content, the Broken Movie was never officially released (and likely never will be), but was leaked as a bootleg which became heavily traded on VHS in the 1990's, and in recent years via the internet.

This release contains the Broken Movie, in its uncensored entirety, in DVD format with the highest video quality that will likely ever be available. Enjoy, and happy new year's.
