to Vote


Twitch, in association with GOMORRAHY.com, is now providing downloadable PDF files of the six most recent issues of the "Quarterly List of Admissible and Prohibited Titles" of the Prohibited Importations Unit (PIU) of Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The issues collectively cover a 18-month period from July 1, 2004 to December 31st, 2005. Each one contains a list of titles reviewed by the PIU, which determined whether the material in question is "admissible" or "prohibited" - that is, whether or not the importation of the material into Canada is permitted - based on whether or not it deemed the material to be "obscenity, hate propaganda or child pornography".

If you would like to receive free issues of the "Quarterly List of Admissible and Prohibited Titles" at the end of each quarter (i.e., four times a year), in PDF file format via e-mail, please contact the PIU at

For those who may be wondering what an article on material deemed by the PIU to be "obscenity, hate propaganda or child pornography" has to do with the kind of movies normally discussed here on ScreenAnarchy, it should be noted that on Friday September 10, 2004, CBSA arrested a man for importing into Canada a copy of Bo Arne Vibenius' Thriller - A Cruel Picture (Thriller - en grym film), and on Monday July 28, 2003, CBSA - then Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA) - arrested me for importing into Canada a copy of Catherine Breillat's Cannes-prizewinning Fat Girl (À ma sœur !). BTW, both of these movies currently are being sold on DVD at that cesspool of "obscenity, hate propaganda [and] child pornography" known as the Twitch DVD Store.

It's kinda funny.. when I first saw this, I thought to myself.. must be from The Gomorrahizer. Sometimes I think he tries too hard...

Are they the "Official, National Breasts of Canada"?

TiGrBaLmFebruary 14, 2006 3:02 PM

Awesome, the irony of this is that......I saw "A ma soeur" on TMN!! like a year ago too! lol Good info post.

On the contrary, the Gary Busey film sounds potentially interesting, because it sounds like it's not about organs per se but the Jewish/Muslim divide, among other things. My question regarding this post was a legitimate one, i.e. I don't understand the point you're making. Am I to read the list of banned materials and think that Canada has a pseudo-fascist, mind-police kind of government? If the issue at hand is whether or not Canada should be banning anything, I say yes. And taking that as a starting point, I don't have a problem with them banning sex with pigs videos. Re. the bulk of your other posts, I don't see what's artistically compelling about fetishistic tits and ass films. The problem could be that I just don't 'get it', or you're just boring. I'm open to either interpretation.

I kinda agree with G here as well. You've got a good cause with films like FAT GIRL and THRILLER, etc. but it's hard to get fully behind you when most of the films on your list contain beastiality and extreme fetish/rape material. I could care less if this crap is banned.

Actually, the problem is that you have a sex fixation. I've posted 485 articles to date here on Twitch (that number doesn't include any articles of mine prior to March 21st of last year, as those were posted by Todd); "the bulk of [my] other posts" haven't been "about fetishistic tits and ass films" - nor, for that matter, has a third of them, or even a quarter of them. The immediately proceeding article of mine, regarding the legacy of the Fuji TV series Endurance (Za gaman), was about both the "13-nin-gakari no za gaman" segment of Ken'ichi Kitazawa's Fuji TV special Môningu Musume. tokuban: 13-nin-gakari no Kurisumasu and Hajime Yarigasaki's AV The gaman II; it was only partly (not mostly - let alone entirely) about "fetishistic tits and ass" material. The next two articles of mine were about Tatsuoki Hosono's drama Moyuru toki: The Excellent Company and Takashi Miike's drama Big Bang Love, Juvenile A (46-okunen no koi), respectively; the one about Big Bang Love, Juvenile A is my latest article - it was posted around three hours after the one above was. The rest of my ten most recent articles, excluding the one above, were about the following (listed in reverse chronological order): Michele Soavi's action-drama Arrivederci amore, ciao, Yûichi Satô's horror Pray (Purei) and Yoshihiro Nakamura's horror Booth (Bûsu), Ryûhei Kitamura's action-drama LoveDeath, Jun'ya Satô's action-drama Yamato: The Last Battle (Otoko-tachi no Yamato), Martín Garrido Barón's horror H6: Diary of a Serial Killer (H6: diario de un asesino), Antonio Hernández's psychological thriller Hidden (Oculto), and Pakphum Wongjinda's horror Scared (Rabnong sayong kwan). As for the article above, it's about censorship, not about "fetishistic tits and ass films" - and it's as much about the censorship of "hate propaganda" as it is about the censorship of "obscenity".

You remind me of a joke in which someone like you complains that the Rorschach test is full of pornographic images.

Not surprisingly, you continue to read those articles on "fetishistic tits and ass films" that I do post.

Does this mean that you read the abovementioned article that was partly about Hajime Yarigasaki's AV The gaman II, clicked on the link in it to the thread in The Rue Mortuary, sought out the link in that thread to a webpage with the trailer for that AV, clicked on that link, and then proceeded to watch the trailer - in spite of my having warned readers that "with regard to that trailer, viewer discretion is strongly advised" (emphasis changed from red to bold)?
