Shortbus IMDb Censorship Update

In an email I received today from Shortbus writer/director John Cameron Mitchell, he tells me that on January 9th, the IMDb agreed to remove the adult label from Shortbus, but a check again today shows the site has not followed through. Other films found by Mitchell (and verified today) that are classified as “adult,” are: Vincent Gallo’s The Brown Bunny, Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi’s Baise-Moi and Catherine Breillat’s Romance.
In addition to 9 Songs, other explicit films that are not restricted include Larry Clark’s Ken Park, Patrice Chéreau’s Intimacy, and Nagisa Oshima’s In the Realm of the Senses.
Thanks for the heads up, John!
