Twelve Famous films that have been prohibited in certain countries
Simpsons movie - Burma: Weird, but it' - The Simpsons' 2007 big-screen adventures were forbidden in Burma because the country's Motion Picture and Video Sensor Board has forbidden the colors scarlet and - here is the table football - amber. China in 2011 resolved to censure TV and film timetravel and brand it as a "frivolous" theme.
Since then, the adventure of Marty McFly and Doc Brown are actually forbidden there, and Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure is also forbidden for the same invention. Spielberg's hot, blurry sci-fi is rightfully regarded as a classic of all times, but after its publication in 1982 the under 12s in Norway, Sweden and Finland - with or without their folks - were not permitted to see it because it was supposed to depict "adults as the enemy of children".
In 1988, home videos of William Friedkin's disputed classic of horrors were taken off the British shelf and were banned for 11 years, although the movie was shown at the cinema from time to time during this time. BBFC rescinded the prohibition in 1999 after coming to the conclusion that the movie "is still a strong and convincing work, but no longer has the same effect as 25 years ago".
Carman and Co's first appearance on the big picture was a satire against free expression and movie filmmaking, so it was ironical (but probably inevitable) that it was outlawed in Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. Kubrick's grudgingly brutal criminal movie was dismissed by the British Board of Movie Classification (BBFC) in 1971, but the filmmaker asked Warner Bros. to pull it back the following year after the media had said it had triggered imitationistances.
The infamous British bestiality scenes of Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider were cut back by censorship before this movie could be released. However, Bernando Bertolucci's sexual exploration of sex was forbidden for many years in a number of different places, such as Chile, South Korea and Portugal. The BBFC rated Wes Craven's 1972 directing début as so brutal that his first theatrical launch was rejected.
Broadcasted briefly on home videos in the early 1980s, the gory nightmare film was prohibited again under the 1984 Recordings Act and stayed out of the UK until 2002, when it was authorised with 31 seconds of cut. BBFC kept this highly powerful film out of the theaters in 1975, and after a short home videotape publication, it was prohibited again until 1999, when it was presented to BBFC again and certified.
Notorious as it is, this fearsome ltalian nightmare with pictures of sexually assaulted people, animal cruelty and graphical savagery was outlawed in the UK from 1983 to 2001, when it was released for home videos with about six mins. of editing time. The BBFC released a less processed documentary in 2011 with only 15 seconds of editing time, but the picture is still prohibited elsewhere.
Tarantino's super-gory début became a box-office success when it opened in 1993 in British theaters, but it was prohibited here on home videos until 1995. The BBFC refused this cruel Netherlandish nightmare movie a direct-to-video publication in June 2011 and said he had "made little effort to depict one of the casualties as anything but an object to be brutalized, humiliated and mutilated".
In October this year, after the distribution companies had made 32 obligatory reductions totaling over two and a half minute, the movie received an 18-year-title.
