Disclaimer! – This film is pretty intense folks. If you’re sensitive to amputation, mutilation, and blubbery sea mammals, then we’d recommend skipping this one.

It’s Fine Lines week here at BTR, so we thought we’d share with you IFC’s list of the most controversial films that the MPAA rating system crossed the line with their judgments.

Tune in for the complete list!

In honor of Fine Lines week we’ll also talk about NYC’s oldest-running tattoo shop — FineLine Tattooo. We’ll chat about the changing nature of the tattoo industry, along with some of our favorite personal tattoo stories.

If you haven’t already check out Zach’s articles about the shop:
