    MPAA Rejects ‘Taxi To The Dark Side’ Movie Poster Because It Depicts A Hooded Detainee

    [​IMG]

    Alex Gibney’s new critically-acclaimed documentary Taxi to the Dark Side follows the path of Afghan taxi driver Dilawar, who was innocent of any terrorist ties but still “tortured to death by interrogators in the U.S. prison at Bagram Air Base.” It also examines the Bush administration’s torture practices at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib.

    The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has rejected Taxi’s poster, displayed to the right, as being “not suitable for all audiences.” The poster for the film simply shows two soldiers walking away from the camera, holding a hooded detainee between them. Variety notes that the military has also tried to censor the photo on the poster:

    The “Taxi” ad art is actually an amalgam of two pictures. The first, taken by Corbis photographer Shaun Schwarz, features the hooded prisoner and one soldier. Another military figure was added on the left. Ironically, the original Schwarz photo was censored by the military, which erased his camera’s memory. The photographer eventually retrieved the image from his hard drive.​

    The MPAA is a private organization and can do what it likes, however chickensh-t it may be.

    i understand that... it's about a prevalent mentality, not a direct Bush League link...

    interesting though, that the MPAA finds Saw III and Hostel as perfectly suitable posters...

    Those movies probably have more truth and reality to them, than this latest anti-US lieumantry.

    Redacted ,now this, I'd like to see these Hollywood pussies be waterboarded.

    If it is a "documentary" why does it need some art fag poster? Why not a shot from the actual "movie"?

    lol.... what's "racist" about a white man recognizing another white man's racist tendency?

    as for where i post, what does that have to do with anything? i post on several NFL and college football forums... so what's your goofy point?

    what are you, 6?

    Deer Hunter was an actual movie, most people know that movies take liberties and shortcuts. "Based on actual events" is different than some hack documentary.

    Have you ever been to an art gallery?
