When Is 'Too Much' What Is Coming Next?
 
# 1 : Tuesday 22-10-2013 @ 16:11
 
 
Musicians, film directors, Television producers.
What is acceptable these days in songs, movies and TV shows would have been completely unacceptable 20 years ago, unimaginable 40 years ago and if you showed someone 60 years ago the Full frontal Nudity, cursing, graphic violence, Raunchy dancing, and all sorts of stuff that is the norm today they would have probably had a heart attack.

So you have to wonder whats next?
Are there any taboos that are yet to be broken?
Are we ever going to see the sort of graphic videos that you can find on sites like LiveLeak being shown on regular Television?
And what about music? It is hard to think of it being pushed any further than things like gangster rap and some of the brutal death metal when it comes to lyrical content.

Have we passed the limits of what is acceptable? Where are we heading if we keep pushing the limits and more and more things become acceptable.

That is an interesting question. The boundaries of acceptable have been pushed very far in comparison to the recent past for sure, but the progress (if you want to call it that) has not been evenly distributed. For instance in terms of television we have some fairly risqué things being broadcast daily, like those sex phone line adds, there are also pay per view porn channels. It is fine for Rihanna to be naked as a habit and to writhe about and sing about whips and stuff but at the same time our country has not yet deemed it acceptable for two loving committed people to be legal married just because when they go to bed they happen to have the same parts. Shows like Geordie Shore promote behaviour that was demonized only few decades ago. Kim Kardashian is famous for a tape and act that would have literally destroyed any woman's career just a few years ago and a few decades before that would have been illegal in some places.

There is a documentary called 'This Film is not yet Rated', if it is the one i am thinking about it shows some of the hypocrisy that is prevalent when it comes to censorship regarding sex scenes between man and woman and same sex couples.

In a rare and refreshing reversal of roles, filmmakers put the powerful Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA for short) under the microscope for inspection in Academy Award-nominated director Kirby Dick's incisive look at stateside cinema's most notorious non-censoring censors. Compelled by the staggering amount of power that the MPAA ratings board wields, the filmmaker seeks out the true identities of the anonymous elite who control what films make it to the multiplex. He even goes so far as to hire a private investigator to stake out MPAA headquarters and expose Hollywood's best-kept secret. Along the way, Dick speaks with numerous filmmakers whose careers have been affected by the seemingly random and sexual-content obsessed judgments of the MPAA, including John Waters, Mary Harron, 'Darren Aranofsky', Wayne Kramer, Kevin Smith, Matt Stone, and Atom Egoyan.

Jeez,you've just given Channel 4 the gift of a new programme idea,kinda hard to know it such a show (for adults)might be a feasible idea.

Taboo can work the other way too - things acceptable on film once might be unthinkable now. Take Old Yeller (1957), a cute family film made by Disney in which a boy's beloved dog gets rabies so the boy tearfully shoots her dead with a shotgun. It's unlikely there will be a remake.

I think there's always going to be taboos to be broken, but the next media taboos will be things we might not even have thought of, or might not even be issues yet

for example, homophobia and the inaccurate/stereotypical depiction of queers in
tv shows were never an issue before, yet now it would be considered extremely taboo

I cant see them ever doing a remake of Freaks (1932)
It would never get green lit.

A circus trapeze artist, Cleopatra, takes an interest in Hans, a midget who works in the circus sideshow. Her interest however is in the money Hans will be inheriting and she is actually carrying on an affair with another circus performer, Hercules. Hans's fiancée does her best to convince him that he is being used but to no avail. At their wedding party, a drunken Cleopatra tells the sideshow freaks just what she thinks of them. Together, the freaks decide to make her one of their own

Videodrome raised some interesting questions as to the future of TV, as did Network.
Network is still very relevant today. Do people want to keep pushing the limits? Will they not be happy until we have murder (or on screen suicide) as a nights entertainment?

Desperate Housewives and lots of other US shows depict gay men as overly camp...

Yeah, Sex and the city, Dharma and Greg etc
Even on reality shows the gay contestants are more often than not very camp.
It does sort of reinforce that stereotype, and perhaps that still the level that TV producers are comfortable with. Gay is ok so long as it the gay we expect.

Maybe then it is not so much that everything is becoming acceptable, we are less and less discerning or generally degenerating and rather that our morals are shifting sex is being valued more while violence, in nearly all forms is being more and more condemned.
