This Film Is Not Yet Rated (2006)

This Film Is Not Yet Rated (2006)It is to documentaries that we go for this pairing, starting with a favorite of all three hosts! Kirby Dick, two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature, turned to the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the organization that provides the ratings for all films released in the United States, at least those that want to be shown in established theater chains. He attempted to discover how the ratings system works, but found out so much more! He discovered that the MPAA is, essentially, a private clandestine organization whose membership is kept a closely-guarded secret, and that there is no one on the ratings board, or the ratings appeals board, who has any education in film! In fact, all but one person on the ratings board is in violation of even the MPAA's own rules on who can be a rater! But to find all of this out, he turned to a private investigator in Los Angeles who helped him discover who the secret raters actually are, and revealed the one-sided application of Christian dogma to the ratings board as well! The film includes interviews with many famous directors, including John Waters, Kevin Smith, Kimberly Peirce, Darren Aronofsky, Atom Egoyan, Wayne Kramer, and Matt Stone! If you're a fan of films, this is a must-see!
