From the Cutting-Room Floor:
Circumcision in the Movies

In general, films made in the US support circumcision, running two contradictory themes: : - Only Jews are circumcised
- All males are circumcised
Films made outside the US treat circumcision more as a strange custom or symptom of disorder. They emphasise the pain, both physical and emotional.
