This Film Is Not Yet Rated

An independent documentary film about the Motion Picture Association of America's rating system and its effect on American culture. The film discusses disparities the filmmaker sees in ratings and feedback: between Hollywood and independent films, between gay and straight sexual situations, and between violence and sexual content.

This is a rather long film, but well worth the investment of time, I think. The Kafkaesque nature of the MPAA is a truly bizarre anomaly in a “free society” (as it’s laughably called).
