Oz family lobby groups want gory Inglourious Basterds bannedFebruary 22nd, 2009 - 3:24 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, February 22 (ANI): A family lobby group wants a ban on Quentin Tarantinos latest film Inglourious Basterds after dubbing it to be extremely brutal.
The World War II movie, starring Brad Pitt as a Nazi-murdering commander, is planned to be released in August but a script leak on the Internet has sparked fury amongst groups who are opposing its classification.
Bill Muehlenberg, from the Family Council of Victoria, put out a word of caution against the idolisation of violence through the character of Pitt, reports the Sunday Herald Sun.
“He is a role model for many young people, so the more gory and bloody and violent it gets, the worse the example,” News.com.au quoted him as saying.
“We have a classification board that allows filmmakers to get away with murder,” he added. (ANI)
