This Film Is Not Yet Rated
Source: Catholic News Service
Lively but disjointed and ultimately unconvincing documentary that sets out to expose biases and inconsistencies in the ratings process of the Motion Picture Association of America, the film industry's lobbying organization, arguing that the ratings board treats sexual content more stringently than violence, curbs the freedom of independent filmmakers, favors the big studios and applies double standards to homosexual themes. Filmmaker Kirby Dick hires a private investigator to uncover the identities of the MPAA board members (anonymous parents from everyday walks of life), but his premise is undermined by most of his illustrative clips which, if anything, seem to indicate that the movies from which they derive well deserved their restrictive ratings on the levels of sex, violence or language. Brief clips of graphic sexuality and some rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. It is not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
