That is a great poster. Hopefully it survives.

Clearly, not all images are treated the same at all. What about classics like

THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN

or the ultimate torture movie

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST

which actually features the bloodied head wearing a crown of thorns?

Besides, the hood is not at all a "symbol of torture". It is a symbol of concealment. It has become associated with torture precisely because of the issues that Gibney examines in this film. How is continuing to properly acknowledge human suffering caused by our policies overseas protecting the children from anything other than an undeserved clear-conscience? And why do we spend our adult lives eliminating ideas that threaten the fantasy of childhood innocence? This ruling is predicated on a ridiculous argument perfectly suited for this ridiculous time in which we live.
