If you haven’t caught wind of this ridiculous case of “Oh, really?”, the Motion Picture Association of America (the MPAA) have deemed actress Eva Green’s veiled breast in one of the posters for the very anticipated and too long delayed sequel to Sin City, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For too hot for advertisement.
Nevermind the gun she has grasped in one of her hands in clear, plain view!
The MPAA’s misplaced censorship of Green’s poster reminded me of when actress Evan Rachel Wood blasted this same group for censoring the oral sex scene (on a woman) from her film Charlie Countryman with Shia LaBeouf. She made several good points on her personal Twitter account of the many instances in which men received or were perceived as sexual Gods in rated R films, as well as rape scenes of women, with no major complaints, but a scene of said sexual act performed on a woman is labeled as too controversial. This was also an issue for the film Blue Valentine, in which it nearly got a NC-17 rating due to similar sequences akin to Charlie.
I would normally put this Sin City poster nonsense in the category of “On That Bullshit”, but considering how silly this story is and her character’s concealed weapon, let’s revel in how upside down things can be even when people try to do the right thing for society.
A woman’s breast is more threatening than her gun. Hmmmmm…
