Unskippable cutscenes are physically preventing me from progressing

Every time I try to play out a certain particularly long cutscene my pc shuts down, meaning that I cannot progress past that point. The ability to skip or at least render cutscenes to the users video settings would allow me to move forward. If story is a problem there could be a menu option to show dialogue of past cutscenes. But the ability to skip all cutscenes would be really nice right about now.
