Add header image

For nearly the entire history of film production, certain films have been banned by film censorship or review organizations for political or moral reasons. Censorship standards vary widely by country, and can vary within an individual country over time due to political change or shifting moral attitudes.

Well, I've not seen either of them so I can't say why. I just found it on Wikipedia but had no reason.

What is banned for you? Movies that are not allowed to be sold, or movies that you are not allowed to posses?

Here is a little list for films that are not allowed to be sold in Germany: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kategorie:Beschlagnahmter_Film

a more comprehensive one is this one: test.schnittberichte.com/view.php?Page=List&Kat=BeschlagnahmenFilme

but still not complete. most movies are on theses indexes for massive violence like snuff.

Yeah. The UK banned A Clockwork Orange until 2000 and that's a British film.

Evil Dead was actually not banned in Finland, but it was heavily censored ad absurdum. In fact it was cut very professionally almost making it another movie entirely with more psychological, off-screen (off-film in fact) horror elements! It was cut by a young Renny Harlin, who incidentally directed a film ARCTIC HEAT, which in fact WAS banned because it was deemed a politically hot potato, enough reason for Renny to look for work in a more civilised country.

I am Irish and I have seen copiesofFrom Dusk Til Dawn in loads of DVD shops.

Salo may arguably be one of the most disturbing films
ever made. Seriously not for sensitive people.
Posted: 6 years, 11 months ago at Nov 14 5:28
I see that some of the movies are violent and some have sex or risque behavior implied. And some may have been politically controversial like The Manchurian Candidate, but
Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein
Johnny Eager
Mrs. Miniver
The Big Sleep
Laurel & Hardy
Mildred Pierce
and why would anyone ban The Marx Brothers?
