Blockbuster in Iran....

carries only two films on its shelf??

Iran has slapped a ban on foreign films deemed to be " feminist", " secular " or pro-American.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he wants Iran to become "an ideal society founded on the Koran "

therefore the ruling council has determined that loyal Iranians can't watch films that promote:
1] secular
2] feminist
3] liberal
4] nihilist ideas or degrade Oriental culture

also forbidden are films featuring violence, narcotics consumption and " propogande for the world oppressors" [ i.e. America ]

this is in addition to the usual ban on depictions of sex, especially between unmarried, unrelated members of the opposite sex.. and don't even think about lesbian/gay stuff..


what two films are left on Blockbuster's shelves in downtown Iran?

Heidi? Mohammed does Mecca?
1.The Good, The Bad and The Ifidel.

2.Some Mullahs do 'ave 'em.
1. Wallace and Grommit - The wrong Burkha

2. In the name of the Allah (only because he's a local in my bar)
Koran on camping
