Video nasties list

by cynismos | created - 4 months ago | updated - 1 month ago | Public

Voici la fameuse liste rendue publique en 1983 du DPP (Director of Public Prosecutions) de films interdit en Angleterre (72 films au total) et un supplément à partir du numéro 73 de films interdits par la BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) ou saisi par la police ou interdit dans d'autres pays que l'Angleterre. La plupart de ces films ne sont plus interdit aujourd'hui et la plupart des scènes ne sont plus censurées. J'ai noté de 1 à 10 selon mon appréciation cinématographique et personnelle les rares films que j'ai vu de cette liste. Certains sont de bons films, mais la plupart sont des gros navets de mauvais goût. La plupart sont des films d'horreur et/ou films d'exploitation généralement tous classés 18 ans et plus. La valeur historique de ces films ne concerne pas particulièrement leur qualité cinématographique ou le message que voulait passer certains films (quoique certains films comme «Evil Dead» ou encore «l'Exorciste» ou «Orange mécanique» ou «Suspiria» ou «Les diables» ou «La nuit des morts vivants» sont considérés comme des classiques et dans certains cas des chefs d'œuvres), elle consiste plutôt à la question du débat social, éthique, politique et juridique concernant la liberté d'expression et ses limites à une époque où la censure était importante dans nos sociétés.
