The Cut Bits!
We've done rather well at pushing through films uncut for the first time in the UK but as we all know NYR and Venus in Furs got a wee bit shaved which rather peeved us 'cause when you hand over your 12.99 we'd like you to get the whole thing. :(

With that in mind here are those missing seconds for you good people! :)

Eh I don't need to tell you these bits are graphic so if you're easily offended then... what are you doing on this forum? ;)

Hmm. The BBFC have always frowned upon blood on breasts in films, and also the fact that a woman could become receptive to a man during a sexual assault, but the Venus In Furs footage is no worse than the attack in Straw Dogs. The same goes for New York Ripper, had Scorsese or Spielberg felt the need to mutilate a womans breast and nipple the censors, sorry classifiers, would be a lot more receptive...

As a woman I have to say I didn't find the scene from Venus in Furs all that offensive. In fact, I didn't find it offensive at all. But is terribly kind of the BBFC to save me the trouble of finding this out for myself. The amusing thing is, if she were abused further and therefore punished for her enjoyment of the rape, the BBFC probably wouldn't have had a problem with the scene...

What a bunch of weirdos!

Great to watch the missing scenes and I was then really pissed off to find out how inoffensive they were!! Utterly unnecessary censorship :mad:
BBFC eh?...... Well done Rockstar Manhunt 2!!
Almar, ever thought of doing the same with NYR and VIF? ;)

I suspect any chance of success would be virtually zero.

Shameless's track record at the BBFC is proving to be extremely promising.......

New York Ripper (Slightly less cut than before but this will always prove to be a difficult one with the BBFC - though the day will come.....)
Venus In Furs (Much less cut than before and only to 1 scene)
Late Night Trains (From a cinema rejection to an uncut release)
Phantom Of Death (Previous cuts waived)
Torso (Previous cuts waived)
Killer Nun (Previous cuts waived)
Flavia The Heretic (Previous cuts waived)
The Frightened Woman (Previous cuts waived)
My Dear Killer (Previous cuts waived)

That's pretty good by any standards. :)

Wholeheartedly agreed. I bloody love Shameless!! :cool:

It isn't a Franco film.

Sorry, I realised that before I went away last weekend and forgot to edit the post. Ooops my bad.
