Cutting Sin City
Just came back from watching Sin City. I was impressed by how faithful it was to the comics.
But man, the local censors butchered it! They cut all the boob shots and some of the more gory scenes and the killing of the priest.
What the hell? Are they afraid that we'll all become evil doers when we see boobs? Will it mean the decline of society when we're exposed to a few nipples?
And killing a priest? Is the MTRCB afraid that it will spur mass action against the church?
And the gun jamming itself into Jackie's forehead -- that's got to be the most unique scene in movies nowadays. You don't see that everyday.
Crap, so much for watching it on the big screen.
