Apparently the Iranian Supreme Cultural Revolutionary Council, headed by President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, last week approved a ban on foreign films that promote "secularism, feminism, unethical behavior, drug abuse, or violence." Also off the list are movies that feature propaganda for "the world oppression" (that means the U.S.) and foreign films that promote "liberal or nihilistic" ideas. Or alcoholism.
Looks like Iranian moviegoers are going to be spending a long winter watching "March of the Penguins." Over and over and over and over again.
