Graphic sex scenes in Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci's new film "The Dreamers" will likely be cut out of the movie before it can be viewed by US audiences, the director revealed.

I think this is ridiculous. No one who can't handle graphic sex scenes is going to see this flick anyways (and children don't even know who Bertolucci is), so who exactly is this truncation intended to protect? Bertolucci might be a commie and a half, but he's still a genius, and I, for one, would like to see his work as he intended it. It kills me to say it, but sometimes the Europeans are right when they accuse Americans of being unsophisticated prudes.
