"Not a Love Story, the National Film Board documentary about pornography, has generated so much controversy that it has become more of a happening than a movie. This week, more than 1,000 people lined up and half of them couldn't get in to Toronto's St. Lawrence Centre for a 'private' screening of the film that was panned by local newspaper critics and banned for commercial release by Ontario censors. Except in Quebec and British Columbia, where the movie has been approved by censors, that scene has been replayed in major cities across Canada since the film was first shown at Toronto's Festival of Festivals in September."
