re: #208 Cato the Elder

On the other hand, there is his little speech before the court: “For a nation of pigs, it’s funny you don’t eat ‘em…I hate you, and I hate your nation, and I fuck your sons and daughters because they’re all pigs.”

I wonder if this movie is shown in Turkey.

I’m not sure. The movie was made around the time of the Islamic awakening and the establishment of the Iranian theocracy. Beirut was still a party town and Islam was just beginning to radicalize and seethe relentlessly. I don’t recall mass Islamic outrage over the movie but I was young then.
