Western Movies

Q:

Salaam

Can you tell me what is the ruling of Ayatullah Sistani on watching western serials or movies ?

If its not allowed because it contains some bad scenes, or non islamic akhlaq is it ok to still watch without looking at the bad scenes or its completely forbidden to look at such movies or serials ?

Thank you

A:

Alaykum Salaam

Western movies themselves are not the problem; however it is not allowed to watch scenes of nudity or listen to music that is of the prohibited category, and if it is a  genre of movie where these are the main contents then it must be avoided

 Kind regards
