Borat 2 Producer Why Films Should not Be Censored As a consequence of Present Occasions
Everything has time and place. I mean, Zoolander came out right after 9/11 and we weren’t sure how to deal with it because the Twin Towers were in the movie. But it came out two weeks after September 11th and a decision had to be made. Donald Trump is with Melania if he gets charged, will we take her out of the movie? No, it’s about a time and a place. In general, movies are a piece of life and just like the Gone With The Wind disclaimer, I mean, yes, when you see Gone With the Wind now, it’s a little unsettling to see and see it through the eyes of our country You this representation, it’s a little unsettling. But I’m glad it exists because it’s a good reminder of filmmaking and how it evolved. I’m glad there is a disclaimer as well. I agree with that. And Grease, you know, listen, that’s one of my favorite films. It’s been inappropriate for a long time and still I love it. Everything is a piece of life and I don’t expect every film I make to stand up to the test of time. If you do, you will be frozen because you will never be able to make a movie trying to analyze what is to come.
