Netflix controversy over 'Viewing pleasure for paedophiles'.

Netflix says that the drama highlights the sexualisation of children, whilst critics say that close ups of an 11 year olds crotch and very suggestive dance moves provide 'Viewing pleasure for paedophiles':

'Cuties' has led to an unprecedented amount of parents cancelling Netflix.

Can't see what this has to do with virgin media TV service. But the crazies have jumped on a bandwagon without seeing the film.

Correction. A question always posed when Richard starts a post. Again those criticising it not likely to have even seen the production.

Re: Netflix controversy over 'Viewing pleasure for paedophiles'.

Posters advertising the film have been released, and those posters are meant to attract audiences aren't they? So what audience are they trying to attract?

The point is that people aren't complaining on the basis of nothing at all. If the criticizers are supposedly not in a position to complain, then the critics of those criticizers are also not in a position to criticize them. Works both ways.

Netflix have released this on twitter.

We're deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Mignonnes/Cuties. It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film which won an award at Sundance. We’ve now updated the pictures and description.
However the Director has said this.

But director Maimouna Doucouré has explained that the story aims to highlight how social media pushes girls to mimic sexualised imagery without fully understanding what lies behind it or the dangers involved.

Re: Netflix controversy over 'Viewing pleasure for paedophiles'.

Seems a bit like Natural Born Killers, where "everyone" wanted to ban a film they hadn't seen because 1 person got misquoted? In this case Netflix may have shown poor taste in changing the picture, but hey, it created free advertising for a film we'd never have heard of otherwise

Re: Netflix controversy over 'Viewing pleasure for paedophiles'.

So the film has been seen by people.


Of course no chance whatsoever of the film using and criticizing the bigger source of "sexualised imagery", which is NOT social media, but pretty much unavoidable, mainstream media(eg BBC). Been going on long before social media was even really invented.

Re: Netflix controversy over 'Viewing pleasure for paedophiles'.

The usual case of people getting offended and uptight about something they have never seen.

Yes, its basically about a yound girls dance group, and yes, their are a few minutes of suggestive dancing in it. I'm sure it would make a few people squirm, but "Viewing pleasure for paedophiles" - I dont think so, Im pretty sure they would consider it rather tame.

It won awards at a couple of film festivals, and no one blinked, its only the promotion that Netflix gave it that got the inevitable complaints from the "lets get offended" warriors.

Since Netflix dont give details of subscriptions, there is no evidence to backup the claim about "unprecedented amount of parents cancelling Netflix".

I put it in there because that's where the streaming services thread is & Netflix is a service on VM.

Re: Netflix controversy over 'Viewing pleasure for paedophiles'.

Netflix is not exclusively on VM. That's why it has been moved. As for the film, u watched the trailer. Looks like an interesting film but I reckon pedos will be disappointed.
