Thanks to all of you who responded to my request for video censorship
attempts and related websites (surprisingly, very little). I've
decided to go with a list based on the criteria that 1) the film was
controversial, and 2) I liked it. I realize these are pretty
stringent, objective criteria, and I'd be happy to hear any
suggestions from others (I might have missed something...um....or
just not liked it). Anyway, pre-publication, here's my list so far.
If you're looking for problems with patrons, I suspect you can raise
something of a ruckus with the following:

Akira
Betty Blue
Boys of St. Vincent
The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover
Crumb
Damned in the U.S.A.
Devil in the Flesh (1987)
Forbidden Love
The 4th Man
Heat and Sunlight
In the Realm of the Senses
Last Temptation of Christ
Man Bites Dog
My Life as a Dog
My Own Private Idaho
Paris Is Burning
Priest
Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down
The Tin Drum
Tongues Untied
