Wonder if CleanFlicks really do violate copyright - the way I understand it, they buy a tape and resell it to you with the problematic parts cut out. they don't actually copy it. with a dvd you might have to copy - I'm not sure - but they're not ripping the makers off - they buy one copy for each copy they sell.

It seems pretty much the same as if I bought books and resold them with the steamy pages razored out.

I wish I could get custom movies - I'd like that one PG on the violence, PG-13 on sex and language please. There's a lot of highly praised movies I've skipped because I knew they'd be too violent for me - The Patriot for instance, or Braveheart.

Artistic integrity, I suppose. Like putting a bathrobe on the Venus de Milo.

Should have the film in it's unedited form. Should show the most crucial part of history warts and all.

I watched the movie and had no problem with the "violence." It's no different from what Catholics have been portraying in the Stations of the Cross and innumerable paintings of the Passion and Crucifixion for two thousand years. It's no different from reading the Gospel accounts. None of it is gratuitous, and there has not been a single incident of anyone being driven to violence by seeing this film.

Sure, the scourging is tough to watch, and the nailing. But that's what the Passion is about.

There's more to this than the first ten posts touch on.

Mel is against nudity and obscenity.

Clean Flicks is run by non-Catholics and I'll bet you their edits maybe perceived and interpreted by Gibson as anti-Catholic.

I'll bet this comes out later on.

Mel would not want to shutdown a place that cleans up movies unless there is something else going on.
