You don't read well do you?? They are putting in different video they
aren't "censoring" the movie.
What the hell is wrong with you? If you had read the article, there was
political pressure from the government of Quebec to remove the
Lac-Megantic disaster footage. It said so right in the article. Short of
passing a censorship law like the UK, political pressure is pretty close
to censorship as it always comes with veiled threats.
Netflix isn't running the movie as edited by the director. Now, they
agreed to distribute the movie early which is how it got produced. I
guess that gave them rights to re-edit the film.
As Netflix responded to political pressure and not because they were
trying to improve the film, that's censorship.
It had a limited release for the 1 week minimum, I guess to qualify for
an Oscar, but it doesn't sound like an award-winning movie.
Rich is right. You're being an idiot.
