Good Doc

Inside Sex: Censored (2007)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nice documentary taking a look at how films have been censored due to sexual acts. There are quite a few movies out there on this topic but this one here does a good job at gathering up the various eras and discussing them. Not only to do we discussions about the Pre-Code era of the 1930s and the breakthrough of the 1970s but we also get those early stag films from 1915 through the 1960s. Also on hand are discussions of the underground filmmakers like Russ Meyer who were creeping nudity into their films and getting them shown around the country. And of course we have discussions about recent films like EYES WIDE SHUT and SHORTBUS. If you know your history on this subject then you're not going to learn too much new stuff here but I love the earlier sections dealing with the pre-code era. I just love how certain people always think that the "early" days of cinema and culture were clean and pure yet they've never done their homework and looked at some of the trash being put out then. Of course, this stuff wasn't being shown in mainstream theaters but it's still out there.
