Did You Know?


Banned in the UK for a video release. BBFC justifies this with the following statement: Bumfights - Cause for Concern consists substantially of camcorder footage of homeless people ('bums') being abused, assaulted, and humiliated. These scenes are intercut with footage of street brawls and soft pornography. Under the Video Recordings Act 1984 the Board must have special regard to any harm to those likely to view a video and to any harm to society through the behaviour of those viewers afterwards. The Act singles out particular elements as being potentially harmful including criminal behaviour and violent behaviour or incidents. The BBFC guidelines for '18' rated works state that the Board may "cut or reject... any detailed portrayal of violent or dangerous acts which is likely to promote the activity" (page 16). The Board's guidelines for violence also state as particular concerns "callousness towards victims, encouraging aggressive attitudes[and] taking pleasure in pain and humiliation" (page 9). In the Board's view, the video breaches these guidelines by exploiting the physical and other vulnerabilities of homeless people. The Board considered the possibility of cuts. However, given the extent of the unacceptable material, cuts were not considered a viable option on this occasion. See more »

Awful, sick and horrific. Complete exploitation of homeless people.
5 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bumfights is a crude, terrible film which exploits homeless people, through violence and humiliation. Having viewed this at a friend's house, I was shocked at the content. Please, do not buy this, and do not fund the producers by rewarding them for this sick, disgusting film. The fact that the producers have not been put in jail for a long, long time is also frightening, and I cannot understand why anyone would pay money for such a horrible film, which takes away the human rights of defenceless homeless people, and shows them up in disgusting ways. If your idea of fun is seeing homeless people being made to defecate, be urinated on, pull their teeth out with pliers or engage in fights with other homeless, then you must be just as sick as the producers. Such a sad, sad film!
