Summary Notes

Since a road accident left him with serious facial and bodily scarring, a former TV scientist has become obsessed by the marriage of motor-car technology with what he sees as the raw sexuality of car-crash victims. The scientist, along with a crash victim he has recently befriended, sets about performing a series of sexual acts in a variety of motor vehicles, either with other crash victims or with prostitutes whom they contort into the shape of trapped corpses. Ultimately, the scientist craves a suicidal union of blood, semen, and engine coolant, a union with which he becomes dangerously obsessed.

Summary Review: Brave Attempt

The film adaptation, directed by David Cronenberg, becomes a futuristic love story set in the present . James (James Spader) and Catherine (Deborah Kara-Ungar) are a married couple so filled with inertia that they are desperate for some emotional connection by any means necessary. After a series of extra martial encounters they find themselves attracted to a group of disturbed members of a bizarre car-crash sect who enact famous car crashes for kicks. The pair soon find themselves willing accomplices in a tableaux of violence and desire until finally they attain some provisional approximation of actual love. Kara-Ungar's portrayal of Catherine exemplifies perfectly the icy detachment of a woman who appears to be observing herself from another galaxy.

Crash is, above all, a brave attempt to explore an almost un-bearable subject - the death of affect and our unconscious desire for violence.

  UK: Banned in Westminster (central London)

See article from sbbfc.co.uk : Banned in Westminster

Perhaps in the light of the continuing media onslaught against the film, Westminster Council - who had previously given permission for the film to be premiered in their area as part of the 1996 London Film Festival - parted company with the BBFC at this point, insisting that cuts should now be made to the film before it was shown in the West End. The distributors declined to make cuts solely for screenings in Westminster and the film was therefore effectively banned from screens in the West End, including Leicester Square. However, cinema goers could easily see the film in neighbouring Camden where the council allowed the film to play uncut with its BBFC certificate

Summary Review: Psycho Genre

This is one of the last examples of Hammer's psycho genre, similar in style and plotline to those the company made in the early sixties such as Maniac, Paranoiac, Nightmare and Scream of Fear/Taste of Fear.

It probably isn't one of Hammer's greatest achievements but is by no means one of the worst. The photography is very effective in places and the setting is quite haunting in a picturesque kind of way.

In the US the film was heavily cut for an R rating. However the uncut version is available as the Unrated Director's Cut. The European Version contains all the sex and violence uncut but was shortened in uncontroversial plot scenes for reasons of pace. The BBFC cut this European Version for 1985 18 rated cinema release and 1986 VHS. The BBFC cuts were restored for the European Version when released on DVD in 2004. The Director's Cut was passed 18 uncut for 2016 Blu-ray and DVD.

Summary Review: A lurid masterpiece

Ken Russell's masterpiece has cult movie written all over it. A lurid, extreme sex-and-violence fantasy porno-movie.

In the bravest and best performance of her career, Kathleen Turner plays the mystery woman who is Joanna, prim fashion designer by day and China Blue, the fantasy hooker to end all fantasy hookers, by night.

Her nemesis is Anthony Perkin's psychopathic preacher with the razor-sharp dildo. His is the kind of performance that goes beyond mere acting into some kind of crazy stratosphere all it's own.

 Barry Sandler's script is brilliant.

The BBFC cuts were to a drugs joke (Paul Hogan pours cocaine into a basin of water and puts a towel over his head)

From the 1987 BBFC Annual Report:

Cuts to the comic scene of cocaine-snorting in the video of Crocodile Dundee, one of the most popular cinema films of 1986-87. Here small trims were required to remove not only the actual sight of sniffing, which on video now happens off-screen, but all dialogue reference to the nature of the substance by the sympathetic leading lady, who on film suggested an uncritical attitude towards the recreational use of cocaine. When the film was classified in early 1986, cocaine was not a major drug of abuse in Britain, and the scene was found acceptable because of its attractive comic tone. A year later, when the video was submitted, cocaine use had become a problem even for teenagers, and caution was called for in respect of a scene that might be viewed in the family setting for many years to come.

R Rated

93:25s 1999 US drama  by Roger Kumble.
With Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon. IMDb

No BBFC cuts to the cinema release and 1999-2000 Columbia/TriStar videos/DVDS

From article from cosmos.net.au :

The following cuts were mentioned in the UK DVD audio commentary with the director, producer and various crew members.

  • At 9:31 a shot of Sarah Michelle Geller actually snorting cocaine from the crucifix pendant was cut, despite how obvious it looks.
  • At 33:34 Sarah Michelle Geller says, Enough with the girl scout stories. Just fuck her already when Selma Blair's character is showing off to Ronald, her cello teacher.

Cruel Intentions originally scored a US NC-17 rating. The MPAA said that these minor moments had to be removed before an R rating was possible.

Cruel Passion is a 1977 UK/West Germany/Italy drama by Chris Boger.
With Koo Stark, Martin Potter and Lydia Lisle. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

2:46s cut by the BBFC for 1977 cinema release and 1986 VHS. Cut by 19s for 1994 VHS. Uncut for 2012 DVD. US releases used the UK cut and then the uncut version.

Summary Review: Koo Stark is good as Justine

Justine is a nubile young virgin cast out of a French orphanage and thrust into a depraved world of prostitution.

She slips into a life of debauchery, torture, whipping, slavery and salaciousness. Meanwhile, her brazen, flirtatious and liberated sister Juliette ironically receives nothing but happiness and reward for her wanton behaviour.

Koo Stark is good as Justine, innocent, naive, and of course, beautiful. The film has great period detail is beautifully shot.

Thanks to Daniel, May 2008: Subliminally Different

Has anyone else noticed that although the new director's cut recently released in the UK restores the previously censored subliminal footage, the footage itself is different. In the original version, the footage was darkish but still distinct and in colour. In the new version it's bright, scratchy and in black & white! It doesn't even look like the same footage, and is clearly discernibly during normal playback which was not the case in the original version. Is it still genuine hardcore footage?  It appears Channel 5's uncut screening was of even more value than I first thought.

Censorship Reversed?

Now Cruising has been released on DVD for the first time. First off, the movie has been re-mastered and looks like a different film. What was murky or muffled before, now is crystal clear, especially the soundtrack.

Presumably this is the undoing of the censorship required for a US R Rating. William Friedkin spoke of MPAA censorship and cuts to obtain an R for Cruising. See  article from  clickonline.com

William Friedkin : Darkening or bits of smoke over a shot. I've done that with Cruising, where I went back 50 times before I got an R.

CLICK Magazine : Was it worth it?

William Friedkin: Well I'm happy the film was out but without their interference and small-mindedness and their censorship which is what it is. They hate that word. If they read that I've called them censors they will freak out.

18 97:20s UK: Passed 18 after 1s of BBFC cuts with most previous cuts waived for:
  • 2003 FilmFour DVD not released

The BBFC commented:

  • Three compulsory cuts for 18 required to remove sight of explicit anal penetration by penis in two murder scenes

Presumably these cuts are to the much talked about subliminal shots.

Note that when Channel 4 screened The Celluloid Closet a few years ago as part of a gay film season, this documentary (a survey of homosexuality in the movies) included clips from this film, one of which was the cut sequence of (almost) subliminal anal penetration building up to a murder. These were fairly rapid film inserts, but you couldn't fail to notice them.

UK: Passed 18 after 39s of BBFC cuts for:
  • 1997 Warner Maverick Directors VHS

The BBFC cuts were:

  • 30 seconds were removed from the 1st murder, 7 shots. About 19 seconds removed of the killer gliding the knife over the victim's body. To bridge the gap, a shot which turns up later, (the killer grabbing something to tie the victim up with) is run here instead. 2 more shots removed of the killer tying up the victim. During the stabbing, 4 shots were removed, 2 of these shots were subliminal images showing hardcore anal penetration.
  • ~29minutes into the film, a camera pan across one of the gay bars has lost 6 seconds (Just before the guy asks Pacino about the hankie).

There still exists one other subliminal shot during the peepshow murder, the image is so dark it looks like nothing. It's cut into the shot of the knife going into the victim's back.

Cut in the US for a PG Rating. There is also an uncut UK version rated X for 1970 cinema release and 15 for 2008 DVD.

Summary Notes

In Elizabethan England, a wicked lord massacres nearly all the members of a coven of witches, earning the enmity of their leader, Oona. Oona calls up a magical servant, a "banshee", to destroy the lord's family. (The "banshee" of this tale bears no resemblance to the normal usage of the term!)

With Jackson Beck, Pamela Gruen and Allen Garfield. YouTube icon BBFC link IMDb

Summary Notes

Private detective takes on a case and gets mixed up in murder, sex and blackmail.

Cry Uncle! is a real curiosity piece...a raunchy, sex- and naked body-filled detective yarn with decent acting, some genuine laughs, some amazingly tasteless scenes, and one brief bit of hardcore porn involving a 65-year-old man. Oh, yeah, and it was directed by the guy who would eventually bring you Rocky and The Karate Kid.
