Ban this sick filth!

Off to a conference in London today to see Ruggero Deodato, director of gob-smackingly sick and twisted Cannibal Holocaust, argue/debate with the BBFC about censorship and show off a premiere of a brand-new cut of his masterpiece/bucket of squalid filth. So... real animal cruelty, forced abortion, rape, horrific punishment for rape... you name it, this films got it!

Some films just go too far don't they? But what is too far? Irreversible's 10 minute single shot rape scene? A Serbian Film and any of the joys contained within? Salo and 120 Days of Sodom? I could go on but I've got a conference to go to. I will return....
