Sex.Violence. FamilyValues gets scathing reviews from some cinema-goers

Sex.Violence.FamilyValues, the Singaporean movie that was banned in the country and later re-allowed on condition that some scenes are circumcised, has received bad reviews from cinema-goers.

The movie, rated R21 by the Moral Development Authority of Singapore, has been widely anticipated because it features the going-ons at a porn film set and also generous helpings of Sylvia Ratonel’s almost-bare bum.  Read the full story

17 stills that make you support “Sex.Violence. FamilyValues” movie


As always, we promise these are the best bits. From the movie trailer.

The highly-acclaimed local film “Sex.Violence.FamilyValues” has been unbanned. After it was previously banned three days before its original release date of 11 October last year.

All because one of the film’s three short stories, Porn Masala, has racial references that offend the sensibilities of the Media Development Authority.

However, MDA has since revised the movie’s rating to R21. The movie will be out on March 14 at Cathay cinemas.

But edits have been made: Two partial lines of dialogue amounting to 8 seconds of the film has been glazed over with a musical score.

Regardless, we must support local talent.

Therefore, here are 17 stills from the movie that will whet your appetite for sex. And pay money to watch it for its storyline.

The Ministry of Information, Communication and the Arts has drawn up a list of new ratings for movies that do not fall into the existing categories between G and R21. This is to keep the ratings system in line with the changing values of society.

“People have become increasingly intolerant of offensive racial, sexual, and beastial remarks. So being a super efficient government, we felt the film ratings should respect the collective hate mob by cutting these racist bigots from mainstream society,” said a MICA spokesperson.

The first victim to this new scheme is local filmmaker and former Straits Times reporter Ken Kwek, whose arthouse porno, Sex.Violence.FamilyValues, was given the “Not Allowed for all Ratings” rating. The film was previously given an M18 film classification and was due to be screened in a few days time. Now, it will only be torrented among hipsters and Sylvia Ratonel fans.

According to an MDA statement: “An overwhelming majority of the panel members have expressed that the film should not be allowed for public exhibition in view of its overt racial references, which are remaining and offensive to Indians.”

It is not known if self-proclaimed saviour of all indignant minorities Lionel De Souza was involved in the panel, or if there were Malays protesting about the lack of representation in the film, which features an Indian porn star and an Ah Beng film director.

New Nation spotted some Indians protesting about the new rating

but according to the MDA panel, which are made up of members of the public representing the spectrum of Singaporeans, these Indians who can take a joke are an insignificant bunch.

Meanwhile, MICA has released three other ratings to differentiate films further.

Selectively Messy:

Such films showcase the best of Singapore’s creative industry and has a strong focus on street art. Though this category has not been used yet, it is believed that Jack Neo’s next film about graffiti artists painting the portraits of their MPs at the void deck will be handed with this rating.

Run DMC (Danger to brain cells):

Such films, such as Greedy Ghost, The Ghost Must be Crazy and 2359 exist for the sole purpose of keeping NSmen brainless, and nostalgic about the times in the jungle when thinking was unnecessary. Such films are essential to keeping the backbone of the country — staffed with mindless drones — obedient and functional.

Government endorsed: 

Manly Mediacorp star Tay Ping Hui recently released a 13-min short film as part of MediaCorp’s TesTube project, an initiative to yank the national broadcaster out from their time warp, where they’ve been stuck since the 1980s. Such films enjoy the use of national television for distribution, and more promotion from Mediacorp’s print, online and radio platforms.
