Also, France took in Roman Polanski after he fled the U.S. rather than face charges for raping a 13-year-old girl.

And he shacked up with a 15 year old when he got there because he definitely learned his lesson!

If Ted Cruz refers it to the Justice Department, does that mean Bill Barr has to sit down and watch Cuties?

Also, I guarantee there’s nothing in it that’s in anyway actionable by law enforcement.

When I think of how a million Iraqis died in the war, I get sad and think about how it could have been avoided, if only I had laughed harder at 9/11.

i don't know how it's even controversial to be antagonistic toward cuties

like, you can absolutely make a movie with an anti-rape message, for e.g., but if in order to make that movie you end up actually raping a whole bunch of people perhaps the deluge of criticisms against your movie's content goes above-and-beyond a simple misreading of the surface features of your original message

likewise, you can absolutely make a movie with an anti- child exploitation & sexualization message, but if in order to make that movie you actually exploit and sexualize a whole bunch of children perhaps the deluge of criticisms against your movie goes above-and-beyond a simple misreading of the surface features of your original message and, mayhaps, other formats would've been more appropriate for your visionary message

I just read a review of it, and apparently it's a spy show that takes place in 60s London and for some reason Thomas and Martha Wayne are there too, and they're also both spies.

Total guess here, but it sounds like they took some original script and shoved Batman characters into it to make it more marketable.

I seriously can’t believe they made another pointless Batman prequel that doesn’t even line up with the existing timeline/canon. I hope they introduce “the Joker”, but then do a big switchero like they did in Gotham and say it’s not really THE Joker, it’s his relative or something.

In all fairness, I do understand the context of the life experiences of the French-Senegalese filmmaker, and the ultimate message. This isn’t the sort of argument that I relish, and I apologize to Sleevless and any one else on the opposite side. I don’t want to come off like I automatically think that you’re terrible people just for disagreeing with me.

But, beyond the marketing being complete pedo-bait, I do question the film’s methods; especially since it brings up a lot issues. Such as, does an 11 year old actress, who is well under the age of consent and too young to even watch the film without an adult present, fully understand the sexual things she’s being asked to do in front of a camera? Or do we really need this many sexualized scenes, including long shots of the butts and crotches of children to drive home a message that sexualizing children is wrong?

I don’t give a single poo poo what consenting adults do. But with children, I have to draw the line somewhere, and this is it for me.

Anyway, that’s all that I’m going to say. It’s too ugly of a topic for a thread about lovable hack-fraud schlubs from Milwaukee.


As people have pointed out, Jodie Foster is 12 when she’s portraying an outright prostitute. And Taxi Driver is considered a seminal film. It kicked off a decades long career for her, one of her most famous roles being feminist icon Clarice Starling.

Part of what bugs me about these discussions is the removal of agency from these girls. It’s 2020. Part of the film apparently deals with just the outright access of all this stuff. Growing up, I had cable. If I was gonna see a raunchy music video, it was going to be on one of three channels and be restricted in someway due to airing standards. “The Thong Song” by Sisqo was hugely scandalous. I was 11/12 when it came out and me and my classmates were all singing that “thong th th thong thong thong.” I loving LOVED when that video would air on MTV. My parents probably never had any idea that I was being exposed to it.

And are we asking these questions when kids are in movies with tons of violence and gore?

So yeah, I would expect that these young girls being led by a woman director telling HER story have probably been treated respectfully and have a better understanding of everything than you give them credit for. Otherwise, please consider Jodie Foster w a coked-out Marty Scorsese in a role in which she’s described as having a tight rear end in a top hat, and ask if you’re not having some kind of double-standard.
