Forbidden Films/Banned Movies

A list of movies that have been banned around the world, be it for political, moral, legal, or religious reasons. Something this list should highlight is that just because a movie is banned, does not automatically mean the movie is "important."

Click "list view" for commentary on where each movie was banned and why, along with some witty commentary. (Work in progress, not all the movies are done yet)
