the original 1962 Kubrick "Lolita" [despite much bowdlerization for the American market] was very controversial [in America] in its day.

Aladdin is controversial? As in *Disney's* Aladdin? 8O

Is it because of that phrase in the opening song "where they cut off their ear if they don't like your face"? I didn't see the movie until it came out on video and they changed the lyrics. But I later got the soundtrack on tape which still had the original lyrics. It freaked me out a little the first time I heard it.

Of course people can say whatever about Aladdin and Jasmine not looking "Arabic" enough, or Jasmine dressing like a belly dancer in a time and place when women dressed much more modestly. Pocahontas was from a tribe where in real life the women were topless, unless you count beads as a "top". :lol:

It's hard to think of a movie that isn't controversial, or at least had controversial moments in it, even if it's gotten mostly positive reviews.


The lyrics got changed for the international release

Kill Bill

Gummo

Eraserhead

Spring Breakers

A Clockwork Orange

Taxi Driver

The Holy Mountain

Good Time

Get Out

The funny thing about that list is that it's not so different from if I were to list my favorite films... I tend to love crime dramas, psychological thrillers, horror and surrealism.
