India, David Fincher will not be censoring Girl With the Dragon Tattoo for you

01.31.2012

David Fincher will not be censored. Has no one learned that?

If I made films that were guaranteed to be badass, I wouldn't want to change them for any reason. Fincher feels the same way when it comes to his recent adaptation of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.

The film was due to be released in India this month. However, before it could be shown it had to go through India's Central Board of Film Certification, also known as the censor board. The board wanted five scenes cut that included nudity. That didn't work for Fincher who stated that only an uncut version of the film could be released.

I respect others cultures and beliefs, but I also feel that if a filmmaker does not want to cut parts of their film then they shouldn't have to just to tailor it to others.

A Sony Pictures India spokesperson said: "Sony Pictures will not be releasing 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' in India. The Censor Board has adjudged the film unsuitable for public viewing in its unaltered form and, while we are committed to maintaining and protecting the vision of the director, we will, as always, respect the guidelines set by the board."

This isn't good news. Fincher is gonna destroy us all when a severe gravitational rift is triggered by the weight of his massive balls.

Wait! So we finally found a huge movie market that when it comes to nudity is even more prude than the US - and that country turns out to be the one that brought us the Kama Sutra!?

I'm confused.

Bravo for Fincher sticking to his guns. But what little I understand of Indian culture, I'm surprised it even came up for discussion.

and i was SO looking forward....

@HoyleHaw - i can where u are coming from but the problem is that india has a lot of useless moral policing - especially where it isnt required. this censor board nonsense is absolutely ridiculous. english films release with cusses all over the place but if a hindi film comes out with abuses in hindi then it becomes a huge issue and the director gets media-bashed - which one could say works in favour of the movie anyway.
point being - the censor board acts more like some sort of moral police

I just didn't wanna sound completely culturally insensitive. But I happen to agree with you.
