This Film Is Not Yet Rated Movie Review


Rated: NC-17

Running Time: 97 Minutes

Year: 2006

Boobs: Lots

One Sentence: Fuck the MPAA

This is a Documentary about the rating system of American movies.  Which is run by the MPAA, or Motion Picture Association of America.  It looks at how our movies are rated, who runs the system, and the way at which it is run.   It has a lot of information and takes a very strong look at what the rating system is, and why we have it.  

Directors and actors weigh in on the subject in this powerful and addictive documentary.  It pulls you in and makes you want to know more and fight for the rights of those that have less power than the 7 studios that run everything.  It is a very well put together documentary, that shows us a lot of what I didn't know about the system, and makes us ask questions and look at things in a new light.  It also made me want to support and watch every NC-17 rated movie that comes out, on principal alone.   

The movie is very adult, as it shows scenes from other NC-17 rated movies, and most of those ratings come from Sex.  So watch out for that, or rent it for that, dependent on your cup of tea.  He talks to actors and directors, getting their opinion on the rating system and talking about their rated NC-17 films.  [tag]Kevin Smith[/tag] talks about Clerks, and lots of other interesting people weigh in.  The doc is informative, funny, interesting, hot and worthy of almost everyone renting.   I think if it even sounds remotely interesting to you, to pick it up and watch it.  It is really worth it, and has a lot to say.   I almost consider giving it a 5, but it was a little slow in some parts, but pretty darn good.  Make sure you watch the deleted scenes and QA from SXSW in the extras.
