Cleanflix at Cinequest

Tonight’s best bet is definitely “Cleanflix,” a surprising documentary. At first, I thought there would be no trouble looking down my nose at the Mormon entrepreneurs who wanted to take the sex and violence out of DVD releases of Hollywood hits. How dare they invade the sacred artistic decisions of film directors? Admittedly, some of their legal arguments couldn’t possible hold water (particularly the notion on “one to one” use—i.e., we buy the DVD, we modify the DVD and rent only that DVD, ergo we can modify it however we like because we’re not really making copies).

However, they Clean Flicks people did have a point that a lot of renegade music downloaders are making: There’s a market that wants this product, and if the corporations won’t fill the niche, we will, and copyright be damned. And after all, directors have always stood still for airplane and TV versions of their movies with the edgier parts toned down.

Finally, though, the human drama of Mormon vs. Mormon outweighs the copyright conundrums. The filmmakers must have spent a long time assembling their endings, and fate smiled on them with a turn of events they couldn’t have scripted in their wildest dreams.

Don’t miss it. Tonight (March 1) at 7:15pm at Camera 12.
