An­tichrist’s dis­ap­pear­ing act

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Pun­ters arriving for last Fri­day night’s screen­ing of An­tichrist at Dublin’s Cineworld may have jumped to the con­clu­sion that, bow­ing to tirades from il­lib­eral blowhards, the au­thor­i­ties had de­cided to Ban This Sick Filth af­ter all. As it hap­pens, the rea­son for the film’s can­cel­la­tion was that the prints had ar­rived without the open­ing im­age of the Clas­si­fier’s cer­tifi­cate.

On a re­lated is­sue, hats off to the Daily Mail’s film critic, Chris Tookey – who, though wildly right-wing, is al­ways pro­fes­sional – for in­clud­ing a dig in his An­tichrist re­view against pon­tif­i­ca­tors who, without hav­ing seen the film, felt able to de­mand a ban. The most prom­i­nent of th­ese was, of course, Christo­pher Hart from, yes, the Daily Mail.
