Blow to Freedom in Japan

June 14, 2010

My feelings about the movie "the Cove" are not a secret, it's a horribly researched movie about an important topic. That doesn't mean that the movie should be blocked from being shown in Japan. If "The Cove" is in fact a horribly researched movie like I believe it is, then people opposed to the movie have nothing to fear. Now, I unfortunately have to admit that there is some form of censorship in Japan and it is blocking a movie from being shown.  Even idiotic and lazy view points deserve an airing, it should be up to the viewing audience to make their decision not mistaken groups opposed to personal freedoms.

「ザ・コーヴ」の日本上映が中止になった。前もブログで映画を見たあとの感想を記したけど、事実の観点から言えばあまりちゃんと作られた映画とは思わない。しかし、映画を見てそれを思う権利、研究して知る権利は憲法によって守られているはず。どこの団体か分からないが、映画の上映を中止に追い込むのは映画の製作者の思惑通りにことがすすむようにしているだけ。大変に残念、日本に住む人にとって残念。
