Summary Notes

Is there solace in revenge? James Bond (Daniel Craig) and M (Dame Judi Dench) sniff a shadowy international network of power and corruption reaping billions. As Bond pursues the agents of an assassination attempt on M, all roads lead to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a world-renowned developer of green technology. Greene, a nasty piece of work, is intent on securing a barren area of Bolivia in exchange for helping a strongman stage a coup there. The C.I.A. looks the other way, and only Bond, with help from a retired spy and a mysterious beauty, stands in Greene's way. M wonders if she can trust Bond, or if vengeance possesses him. Can anyone drawn to Bond live to tell the tale?

The BBFC commented:
The film was originally seen by the BBFC in an unfinished version, for advice as to the film's suitability at '12A'. The BBFC advised the company that the film would most likely receive a '12A' as it was, but that care should be taken when finishing the film not to increase the intensity of certain scenes.

When the completed version of the film was submitted for classification, reductions to one of those scenes had been made and the film was passed '12A' without cuts.

The film including the BBFC cuts became the International Version used for all worldwide releases.

Review from IMDb : Classic of Indonesian Horror

Queen of Black Magic is a classic of Indonesian horror. The dubbing is terrible and the acting is pretty bad, but it offers some gory deaths including the demise of Kohar, who pulls off his own head in a fountain of arterial gore. If you enjoy watching wild Indonesian cinema, it's a blast.

From IMDb:

The export version is roughly 6 minutes shorter than the Hong Kong theatrical release due to cuts to both of the sex scenes with Black Rose (keeping some of her intimacy with Jimmy, and completely deleting her tryst with George), as well as trimming some of the film's slower beats.

Kidnapped and enslaved by gun smugglers, sold by pirates and thrust into the murky underworld of gambling and kickboxing, Chris' journey takes him to forbidding Muay Thai Island where deadly martial arts are taught, the colonial splendor of British East Asia, the dank back alleys of Bangkok, desolate deserts once trod by the warriors of Genghis Khan and finally, the ancient Lost City.

Summary Notes

This story takes place in prehistoric time when three prehistoric tribesmen search for a new fire source.

Anthony Burgess created the primitive language for the early humans in this prehistoric adventure about a trio of warriors who travel the savanna, encountering sabre-toothed tigers, mammoths and cannibalistic tribes in search of a flame that would replace the fire their tribe has lost.

  • Not So Quiet Days
Quiet Days in Clichy is a 1970 Denmark comedy drama by Jens Jørgen Thorsen.
With Paul Valjean, Wayne Rodda and Ulla Koppel. Melon Farmers link BBFC link 2020 IMDb
Banned by the BBFC for 1970 cinema release. Rated 18 uncut since 2003. The film saw legal trouble in the US and had a very limited theatrical release.

Thanks to Gary:

This film the distinction of being the first film to use the word cunt (along with Tropic of Cancer, which was shooting in Paris at the same time).

The film has been the subject of discussion and controversy since it was first released in 1970 and the FBI seized the only English-language copies as they came into the US through customs in San Francisco - consequently the film didn't make it to US theatres. The film has even been described by the Catholic Bishops Board of Review as a portrait of human depravity. The film was ultimately cleared in Federal Court, but the film mysteriously disappeared shortly after its release.

Summary Review: A portrait of human depravity

Quiet Days in Clichy is an enjoyable and entertaining expose of the irreverent antics of two friends living a Bohemian existence in the Paris suburb of Clichy during the sexual revolution of the sixties.

The film is based upon the novel of the same title by American author Henry Miller whose publications were the frequent cause of controversy in the US throughout the author's life.

Nonetheless, it is unlikely to shock an audience of today - the film is neither vulgar nor depraved - it couldn't really be described as pornographic; instead it could be better summarised as intellectual erotica.

It is gentle and humorous. Like life, it lacks a traditional storyline and is, instead, a collection of experiences - some good, some bad, some funny, some not.
