Steven Spielberg's upcoming political drama "The Post" is likely to be banned in Lebanon in accordance with the Economy Ministry's blacklist, a source from General Security told The Daily Star Sunday.The movie's plot bears no connection to Lebanon or the region. Spielberg, however, has long been blacklisted by the Lebanese government – ever since the release of his 1994 film "Schindler's List". The film and the book on which it was based were barred in many Arab and Muslim-majority countries, including Lebanon.
