Despite the fact that director Ang Lee has reportedly trimmed about eight minutes of the most explicit sex scenes from his Chinese-language Lust, Caution, the film has yet to be passed by Chinese censors and its release date has now been pushed back to November 1, distributor China Film Group confirmed Wednesday. Pirate copies of the award-winning film, already a hit in Hong Kong (which appoints its own film-review board), are being pedaled on the streets of many major Chinese cities -- presumably without cuts, making the delayed release on the mainland of even greater concern.
