Using Tokyo Decadence as an example perfectly illustrates the inherent
ludicrousness of the whole situation, since the film is shown regularly on
German cable channel SAT 1, which is easily available over here. Its where I
first got to see the film, but as you say I would hesitate to try to import
a copy since customs would undoubtedly seize it.

I'm also hoping someone is going to jump in and compare our situation with
that in Japan
