This Film is Not Yet Rated

That was the documentary that J and I watched over the weekend. It's about the MPAA and their rating system and how the 6 main studios (who make 95% of the movies and are owned by companies that own 90% of all media) control the rating process. Independent movies suffer and ratings are skewed against gay relations. Language and violence are perfectly acceptable. The side by side comparisons of NC-17 and R rated movies was particularly interesting with the only difference being homo vs. hetero sex acts depicted. Of course during the appeals process you can't cite precedence like in a court of law so each film is on its' own for its' rating.

Kirby Dick did a great job and make a very interesting movie.
