CELLULOID BASTARDS X: A Hard Look at Hard Films will be debuting soon! In this new season, we'll be talking about films that received an X or NC-17 rating from the MPAA, discussing both the films themselves as well how they fit into the larger issues of censorship and the concept of "adult" cinema.
