A quick – and happy – update to a controversial story that Mr. Disgusting reported on last week (If you have a moment, go check it out. It’s worth the read).
You might recall that Montreal Police arrested local indie filmmaker and special effects artist Remy Couture, and charged him with “corrupting morals through the distribution, possession and production of obscene materials” for a body of his work titled “Inner Depravity.” . He was facing up to two years in prison, but has thankfully been found “Not Guilty” by a Montreal, Quebec jury.
As an American citizen, I feel a little shaky talking about what other countries should and shouldn’t do. But it’s obvious to me that this is a victory for artistic expression – no matter how vile you may personally find it. You don’t have to like someone’s art in order to support their right to make it.
If you haven’t seen “Inner Depravity”, we have a clip inside. I can’t tell you what it’s like because I have chosen not to watch it.
