India has banned the release of, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” because David Fincher refused to cut three scenes that they wanted out of the film. There was a love making scene between Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, a lesbian scene, and the rape scene. The film was originally scheduled to premiere in India on Feb. 10th.
The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Another example of censorship! This is Fincher’s work, and he shouldn’t have to be told how to make his movies. Fincher did the right thing telling India to fuck off. Imagine what the film would be like without those three scenes? If those three scenes weren’t in the film, then the film would bomb in India.
Those three scenes they wanted out were the big part of the “Dragon Tattoo” story. All the sex and the rape were the huge part of Lisbeth Salander’s character. If those things weren’t a part of this film at all, then the film wouldn’t have mattered.
I’m siding with Fincher on this one.
