Banned movie sells like hot cake

20 January 2014, 16:06 Wilshere

Nakuru - Days after the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) banned the selling of  “The Wolf of Wall Street” movie due to nudity, sex, alcohol, drugs and profanity, movie vendors in Nakuru town have been making a kill selling the film that they say has become very popular among their esteemed customers.

According to one movie vendor who did not want to be named, it is pointless for KFCB to ban “The Wolf of Wall Street” since the film can be easily downloaded from the Internet.

“Ever since they banned this movie, we have been selling so many copies because everyone wants to know why it is being banned,” said the movie vendor.

The movie vendor also said that business was booming especially over the weekend where he was selling a copy at KES 100, up from the normal KES 50.

A spot check by the media revealed that many people were also watching the film online from cyber cafes.

The movie, which revolves around the life of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo Dicaprio) who is a wealthy stockbroker, has elicited different reactions among movie lovers with many condemning KFCB for banning it.

Those who have watched the movie claimed that there was nothing wrong with the film and that it has important lessons for people who are hooked on drugs.

“I have watched that filmed twice and there is nothing wrong with it; it taught me how drugs can damage a person’s carrier,” said one lady.

They further said that what is being depicted in the movie is a true life story and that KFCB should not shy away from the truth.
