Pssst! Wanna Buy A Geisha?
Despite the fact that Chinese officials have refused to allow Memoirs of a
Geisha to be shown theatrically in the country, bootleg DVDs are easy to
come by, Reuters reported Tuesday. One sidewalk vendor in Beijing offered a
copy to a Reuters reporter for 85 cents, saying, "Of course it's been banned,
but it doesn't really matter. All of my supply is pirated."
