A pedophilia movie that nobody can take seriously? Kinda reminds me of Girls Gone Wild.

But then they told him that it's just for a film

Sorry had to throw that in for good measure. Sounds like this movie is quite the turd in indeed if this is a true description of the movie. Got to wonder what the point is of the movie as far as message if any at all or if it's just thrown together for simple shock value much the way The Brown Bunny climax was. Pass.

Director is a she.
Feb. 4, 2007, 4:21 a.m. CST
Like, a white one? That's some fucked up karma for anyone who watches that shit, for reals.
Feb. 4, 2007, 4:21 a.m. CST
Oh, then I guess it's ok.

Why does everyone slate the movie when they haven't seen it? Yes the subject matter is unpleasant and challenging but surely the film should be based on its merits rather than detractions based upon critical uproar as to its subject. People whinged and complained when Tim Roth made the War Zone and its an amazing piece of film. Myself I just think she's an irritating brat who can't really act for shit.

I thought when I read about a "daota fanning rape movie" on another TB that it was some kinda AICN in-joke along with the Hulk Hogan, has another beer, flames on optimus = I just got off the phone type shit....does this film even have a title? Its gonna piss a LOT of people off. Which sometimes is a good thing but I dunno...

But Donal MacIntyre needs to stfu. The website has more about him than about the movie! <P> Dude sure likes to hear his own voice and tell everyone how great he is. News flash: nobody cares about you. They wanna see the film's subject.

This TB is disgusting.

I bet she runs around in Beauty And The Beast panties behind closed doors.

I know it's supposed to be cool to make light of the worst subject matter in that shock jock ,Sara Silverman kind of way,but come on child rape? Rape can be portrayed in the movies without showing anything and still get the point across. The director needs his/her ass beat with a bat.
Feb. 5, 2007, 2:15 a.m. CST
AWESOME. Oh wait, shit...
Feb. 5, 2007, 6:14 a.m. CST
And he said you be crazeeeeeeee to miss the Dakota Fanning rape movie. Its this years Little Miss Sore Arse

How can films like that get made, who is the fucking target audience for that. I for one wont be rushing out to see a movie about a father abusing his 9 year old girl, think the only film involving rape that was relevant was the accused. Considering that Janet Jackson showing off part of her tit at the superbowl gets a reaction in America dont think this will go down very well at all. I think this has been made for shock value only and that the Director and her parents should be flogged for this
Feb. 5, 2007, 8:42 a.m. CST
maybe I'm wrong here, having not seen the film.... but dekota fanning is a little kid still, right? Is this like a provokative statement on the sexual nature of little girls or has some dipshit layed a turd and tried to pass it off as art? That happens a lot at these festivals i find.

Goodfellas and by extention all gangster films contain a sliver of immorality in that it portrays real criminals who sometimes hurt innocent people (eg.The Spider character in Goodfellas-who was a real innocent human [not a gangster]-who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time) but, alas, Goodfellas is a movie. So, if anything it gets a pass as a history lesson. The Sopranos is dignified in that it portrays thugs killing thugs. However, 'Very British Gangster' is a Documentary. The documentarion made a concious decision to follow a killer around for the sake of entertainment. Sort of like 'Man Bites Dog' without the killings. This is simply repugnant. Expect there to a backlash from victims families on this one. Thank you.
