nixskits asked: Have any personal moral boundaries when it comes to movies? Tarantino said he hates when animals are even scared intentionally, let alone physically abused on film. I wonder where the average viewer stands when it comes to a title like CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) and what it's so notorious for.
Nope. I think there’s this false sense that every movie is made for every audience just because people outside of the intended audience obtain knowledge of that movie. Just because somebody read about it on the internet doesn’t mean it was intended to appeal to them. There’s only what an individual likes/tolerates, not some overriding moral compass that indicates what creators should or shouldn’t commit to film. Also: I have precious little interest in what the “average viewer” thinks of anything.

I’ve listened to this record a truly startling number of times in the past couple of years. I would like to say it gets old but… Nope. Still rad.
