The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Not Being Released In India

I respect David Fincher for telling the Indian Censor Board that he will not alter his remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for that market.

But I love the fact that the studio seems to be backing him up and is therefore losing out on the revenue of over a billion potential movie fans in that country.

It makes me wonder if that was in his contract or something.

What I found interesting on Indian t.v., especially as it pertained to the airing of movies from the west, there were notices which streamed on the bottom of the screen, that if you had a problem with the content (either language, violence, or sexuality, I suppose), you could contact the network. Gotta love censorship! IMHO, if you don't like it, turn the channel. And the husband blah-blahed about "what about the children watching it?" And I blah-blahed back to him my standard, "Well, it's a parent's job to police, or at the very least have a basic idea of the viewing habits and content of their children."

PS: FWIW, Indian "comedy" channel is quite fucked up, imho. You should see some of the schadenfreude fueled Belgian shit-shows airing, which allegedly passes for not just humor, but "entertainment." (quotes intentional.)
