  • The film depicts in a patently lewd, offensive, or demeaning manner and sexual conduct such as sexual intercourse, masturbation and exhibition of the genitals.
  • The film clearly constitutes an attack against any tribe, race, creed, or religion.
  • The film condones or encourages the use of illegal drugs and substances.
  • The film tends to undermine the faith and confidence of the people in the State, its constitution and/or duly-constituted authorities.
  • The film glorifies criminals or condones crimes.
  • The film is libellous or defamatory to the good name and reputation of any person, whether living or dead.
  • The film may constitute contempt of court or of a quasi-judicial tribunal, or may pertain to matters which are sub judicial in nature
