  1. I’m not sure why A24 wanted to target the megaplexes with a cut version of the film to begin with.

    AMC had no trouble selling tickets to Shame, which was NC-17, but that’s because it was a Fox Searchlight serious Oscar contender starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. Take away the movie stars and prestige director, what do you get? An indie arthouse theatrical run regardless of whether it’s NC-17 or R.

  2. Porn is definitely one of the few film “genres” where you ***REALLY*** don’t want to know what goes on behind the scenes.

    Which is terrible because I believe that there could be a safe place for explicit sexual material to be created, filmed and distributed, but as long as humans are involved, the chances for harm are just too damned high. The level of oversight that would be necessary to ensure that everyone was emotionally and psychological comfortable doesn’t seem possible now or any point in the near future. We are still such animals.

    Someone should start making porn solely with sex bots. Get me Bender Bending Rodriguez!

  3. I completely understand wanting to get that unedited theatrical release on the part of the filmmakers. I watched the film at Sundance through their digital offerings this year and enjoyed it enough. But I’m very unsure how many theaters they’re actually going to find that will be willing to show this uncut. It was a lock for NC-17 should they seek a rating right now and was not something that you could easily trim down to achieve an R. To some degree I wonder if Neon will do what they did with Possessor and release an uncut version and try to figure out a rated version because otherwise, this is a guaranteed money pit. Again, solid film but this is going to be a tough one to find places willing to show it outside of indie theaters. This will not see a wide release in it’s current form.
