"This Film is Not Yet Rated"

The NY Times (once again, I’m the NYT’s bitch) had an article this morning about a new movie coming out titled This Film Is Not Yet Rated.

It is a documentary about the American film rating system (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17) and how it is not at all as transparent or rule-bound as some of us (me!) thought. Apparently, the evaluators who assign the film rating are anonymous, over-represented by mainstream christians, and there is very little appeals process built in, or accessible.

I’m going to poke around and see if this movie is playing anywhere around here. It seems to be presenting information which will be new to me unlike Super Size Me, or An Inconvenient Truth, both of which are preaching to the choir.
