DVD review: This Film is Not Yet Rated
It’s an oft-overused statement, but I’m going to say it anyway: This Film is Not Yet Rated is something that anyone with any interesting films, mainstream or independent, needs to see. The MPAA’s decisions have such an impact on the viewing experiences of every filmgoer, regardless of whether or not they live in the US, that people really should be more aware of just how what they can or cannot see is decided. The documentary does suffer from a handful of oversights, and it doesn’t even pretend to be unbiased, while the DVD itself is hardly a technical masterpiece, but don’t let those provisos dissuade you from seeking it out.
I’ve reviewed the recent R1 release of This Film is Not Yet Rated, a documentary exposing the practices of the notoriously clandestine MPAA.
