ISSUE: VOLUME 24.06 NOVEMBER 1995
The subversive eye

Maverick muse

No other medium has the ability to enthral, excite, disturb and terrify its audience as does film, and throughout its 100-year history, from Battleship Potemkin to Showgirls, cinema has prompted particular attention from the censor. In this special edition, Index goes to the movies to celebrate the extraordinary power and allure of the silver screen.

With contributions from Ken Loach, Jiri Menzel, John Sayles, Aida Bortnik, John Waters, Nouri Bouzid, Costa-Gavras, Milos Forman, Andrzej Wajda, Arthur C Clarke, Kathryn Bigelow, Roman Polanski, Ismail Merchant, Quentin Tarantino, Tian Zhuangzhuang, Krzysztof Kieslowski.

"There were a lot of things the censors wouldn't let me do in the movies that I had done on stage. They wouldn't even let me sit on a guy's lap and I'd been on more laps than a napkin." -- Mae West
