Forums - Movies Discussion - Netflix Loses Millions of Subscriptions Over Controversial Film, "Cuties" For Sexploiting Children

Cuties is meant to be a commentary on how the world is influencing children to act more sexual, and why this is very clearly a bad thing. A lot of people are comparing it to how war pieces are also meant to showcase how war is bad.

The difference being, in war pieces, no actual wars are being shown. All of the characters are actors, nobody actually dies, all the blood and gore is fake. With Cuties, there is an actual shot of an 11 year old topless. That is an actual case of child pornography. Imagine if a war movie actually murdered someone on screen and showcased them actually fighting for their life as they died. That would be the equivalent here, and people would be just as disgusted.

As others have pointed out earlier in this thread, the girl who exposes her breast is over 18.

Is there an official source for that?

Are you going to tell me with a straight face you don't see the difference between this and the way girls olympics/gymnastics is shot and covered?

Thats effing disgusting and I hope Netflix and whoever made this get punished for this. 3 seconds of that material is more than enough to understand this is wrong in so many levels. I just can't understand how there are people defending this with a straight face. I was born in the Netherlands and people mention here that in Europe we are more okay for nudity but that is not really true. Some movies have received rightfully backlash. We are then not talking about a kid in bath of which you can see a face. And then this Cuties movie....That's not okay here. By far.

Its a tactic people use to defend this or other types of weird shit they are into. They all go to " but but but its europe and people in europe are OK with nudity!!! But but There was movies in europe that had some things!!!" 

"But but but its from japanese people !!! Japan have different sensibilities!!!" 

Says the weirdos defending random disgusting shit and thinking that Japan and people in Japan is like the shit they see in anime.

Yes There was some weird cunts exploiting actors , Child actors etc and they got blasted for it , that does not make this shit movie ok.

And defenitly  majority of people in europe would be disgusted by this shit.

Whatabouttism is in full force Here.

I justed watched this movie start to finish after reading this thread.

Going into it I felt reluctant because this thread made this out to be child pornography.

Having watched it I really don't know what the fuss was all about. I thought the movie was pretty good. Are all of you a bunch of prude Americans?

Maybe it's because I'm Dutch, gay, and don't have kids of my own.

I was born Dutch as well, moved to Canada at age 26 and yep it's a different culture when it comes to sex and nudity. Zwartboek (Black book here) wouldn't be possible here, Eyes wide shut is heavily censored etc. Nude beaches, never seen them around here. Exposing a breast in public to feed your baby is already under heavy debate.

When I was growing up kids also imitated Madonna from the MTV video clips. Nobody batted an eye at that. And we had the mini playback show on tv every week as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jC5_yJAjcQ I guess that's bad nowadays. Apologies for sharing child pornography from the 80's...

Never heard of the film before, but if Americans are frothing at the mouth over a nothing issue, it's of no surprise to me. This is the same hypocritical culture that loved the abused and exploited honey booboo. Why the hypocrisy?

EDIT

Ah, it's because in this film they're black.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I remember being shocked after learning about that,another thing i recently discovered that shocked me are the American mukbangers that eat themselves to death for the entertainment of their audience.

Edit : Do no agree with how the movie cuties was filmed though.

No it's clearly not a case of child pornography or else officials would have pulled the film way before its release and criminal charges would have been filed for the movie makers.

The film depicts and criticises something that is 100% legal and that happens every day in our western societies. If you're disgusted by the things the film is showing you, which by the way is the intent of the film, you shouldn't get angry at the film but get angry at the society that allows this incredable early sexualisation of little girls.

Do not really mind it when it's a stranger but i must say it's akward to talk to familymembers while they do it ,but it's natural/good for the child and i respect it.

Oh and people from the Netherlands and Belgians are a bit different in my experience,the dutch are rather more talkative and open about sexual and social matters and Belgians keep that openness often for those that are really close to them.

On the other hand,the Netherlands are more religious.



After watching the movie completely and giving it a thumbs up, I must say that those that view this film as food for pedophiles are the ones that have perverted and sick minds.

This movie has a real deep story behind it. It effectively shows the stress religion, poverty, and patriarchy imposes on young minds, how it etches into the fabric of human interaction and how people follow it in order to survive their own cultures; the example here critiques the Muslim faith, but all religions do it to some extent.


The moment when the mother was forced to telephone other people to announce that her husband was taking a second wife was so well executed. The tear that ran down the daughter's face as she saw her mother lie, probably for the first time; the trembling leg that uncovered her mother's facade and revealed her humanity. It felt as if the daughters perception of life was shattered--innocence lost; a defining moment in everyone's life. I could feel both of their pain in my stomach. I haven't seen something this deep from Hollywood since I can remember.

If all you focused on this movie was the dancing from 11 year old actors, you're a sick-fuck. That's all I have to say.
