10 movies that offended foreign governments
The Year of Living Dangerously »10 of 10 «
The Australian film "The Year of Living Dangerously" documented Indonesian President Suharto's rise to power in the 1960s. It was not a particularly kind depiction of the president, and as a result the film was banned for 17 years, finally available to the public in 2000, according to the New York Times.
The first screening of the film in Indonesia was massively popular, according to the Times. One student in attendance told the paper 'If the government had allowed Indonesians to view this film, they would have rebelled against the fascist dictators a long time ago.''
