Oz family lobby groups want ‘gory’ Inglorious Basterds banned
A family lobby group wants a ban on Quentin Tarantino’s latest film Inglourious Basterds after dubbing it to be extremely brutal.
The World War II movie, starring Brad Pitt as a Nazi-murdering commander, is planned to be released in August but a script leak on the Internet has sparked fury amongst groups who are opposing its classification.
Bill Muehlenberg, from the Family Council of Victoria, put out a word of caution against the idolisation of violence through the character of Pitt, reports the Sunday Herald Sun.
"He is a role model for many young people, so the more gory and bloody and violent it gets, the worse the example," News.com.au quoted him as saying.
"We have a classification board that allows filmmakers to get away with murder," he added.
