Most people who aren't already mentally disturbed can tell the difference between films and real life.TheChrisSHas anybody seen it? My partner gave it to me for an Xmas present, and it features a woman struggling to find her way into the modelling world. She spots an advert for a free photoshoot, attends it, and is shortly afterwards assaulted by one of the photographers colleagues, violated and subjected to rape, before being kidnapped for further abuse. Ultimately she embarks on a quest for revenge. If you're a model, if you saw a film such as this, would it discourage you from modelling? Would it encourage a desire for a chaperone? Or do you laugh it off as "only a film?" If you're a photographer, whats your opinion? Is it just a film to you? Does it anger you that films like this are made, instilling fear and distrust into the modelling world?
Films are not real life. They are just films.
A significant number of married people have murdered their spouse.
And an even greater number, I should imagine, have seen Psycho.stolenfacesA huge number of people have seen Pyscho - most of them still take showers....

Have you tried turning your S&M film into foreign language particularly French? I understand the BBFC are more lenient with controversial themes if they are in a foreign language because the people in the quango thinks you have to be cultured to understand a foreign language and educated enough to behave and not go deranged by watching it. I don't agree with your society being a dangerous place attributed to violent films, that is ********!gazbikerHi Guys and Gals I have dealt with and worked closely with the BBFC who issue the guidelines for all film classification. "I Spit on your grave" was one film that the BBFC banned for quite a number of years, I've not watched it but I understand it has quite sickening violence. As times changed and people became more "desensitised" to this "level" of violence it was eventually released. Quite often I would be trying to get a video production of my own certified as 18 rather than R18 because R18 can only be sold in sex shops. An example of what constituted a levels problem would be say a bondage scene such as hands tied behind the back or a combination of blindfold and hands tied. An argument I once tried to use in attempting to get the classification lowered to 18 was that if they can give "spit on my grave" an 18 certificate why can't my production have an 18? Their is answer was that it is to do with the Genre, "I spit on your grave" is classified as "horror", people who go to the cinema to watch "horror" know what they are letting themselves in for but they know its not true and is purely to scare the pants off you. However "my" genre was "adult themes" and apparently the watcher buy's into the production that it is really what goes on in the bedroom so people will go off and potentially tie their partners hands behind their back or blindfold them which could put that person in danger or cause suffering! A big No No at the BBFC is people suffering but its OK as long as the genre is Horror. The question is, does it make any difference to people what the genre is? or do they get influenced and go off and copy what they've seen anyway? My opinion for what its worth is that I think society has become a dangerous place because of violent films, some sick individuals do watch these films and then believe its Ok to simulate what they have seen but in an age where freedom is king I think its only going to get worse! Nuff said
