Film 'Editing' and Cinema Paradiso

In the following montage you'll see images from films from the 1920's and '30s that the censors deemed too scandalous to show the movie-going public. It's a fascinating bit!




And of course what better film to use to explain film censorship that the brilliant ending of Cinema Paradiso?

I miss watching films like Cinema Paradiso. The second part of the original was a tad affected, I though, but the ending is brilliant. This is the stuff of great cinema.

Paradiso is such a great film. I need to pay another visit to it.
