||Synopsis: In a rare and refreshing reversal of roles, filmmakers put the powerful Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA for short) under the microscope for inspection in Academy Award-nominated director Kirby Dick's incisive look at stateside cinema's most notorious non-censoring censors. Compelled by the staggering amount of power that the MPAA ratings board wields, the filmmaker seeks out the true identities of the anonymous elite who control what films make it to the multiplex. He even goes so far as to hire a private investigator to stake out MPAA headquarters and expose Hollywood's best-kept secret. Along the way, Dick speaks with numerous filmmakers whose careers have been affected by the seemingly random and sexual-content obsessed judgments of the MPAA, including John Waters, Mary Harron, Darren Aronofsky, Kevin Smith, Matt Stone, and Atom Egoyan.

Ever been curious about the American film rating system? Then Kirby
Dick's This Film Is Not Yet Rated is perfect. It does to US censorship
what Michael Moore has done to others: it makes everyone look like
jackasses, mainly because that's what they really are.
The film explains pretty early on, through South Park-style animation,
what kind of rating a movie can get in the USA: G, PG, PG-13, R or
NC-17. The last certificate is the most unpleasant one, as a film with
that classification won't get a proper distribution. And it's that
particular rating that Dick wants to dissect.
This documentary is divided into three sections: the largest one sees
various filmmakers (Kimberly Pierce, John Waters, Kevin Smith)
revealing the problems they've experienced because of the American
ratings board, the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America). The
second section features the director's efforts to uncover the
identities of the film raters. You see, the MPAA is supposedly composed
of average American parents, doing a fair job. Then how come no one
knows who these people are? As the investigation continues, we learn
that one board member doesn't even have kids, while several others'
offspring are already adults. So what's really going on?
The last part of This Film Is Not Yet Rated focuses on Dick's own
censorship trouble, a really interesting version of the
movie-within-a-movie gimmick: he sent a rough cut of the documentary to
the MPAA, receiving the dreaded NC-17 (since there's some footage
coming from other NC-rated films), and so we get to see his frustration
as he tries to appeal the controversial decision.
The best part of the film is the first one I mentioned, mainly because
we get to know the rules of the game a bit better. Apparently, any kind
of "weird sex" is not welcome: oral sex (Boys Don't Cry),
threesomes(The Dreamers, American Psycho), gay stuff (Mysterious Skin,
Where The Truth Lies), female masturbation (Jersey Girl, a PG-13 movie,
almost got an R just because Liv Tyler talks about it)... the list is
quite long. Of course, you're better off if your film is endorsed by a
major studio. That's why a glimpse of Maria Bello's pubic hair got
independent film The Cooler an NC-17, while Sharon Stone doing much
more in the audience-baiting Basic Instinct was "appropriate" enough to
receive an R. No wonder most filmmakers hate the MPAA! Hell, we even
find out that Trey Parker and Matt Stone deliberately put distasteful
material in Team America just to make fun of the ratings board.
Another "funny" thing is, the NC-17 is only used against sex. No one
ever says anything about on-screen violence. In fact, any movie can
have the highest body count ever, and be rated R. If there's no blood,
it might even get a PG-13. As people point out, all other countries
have the exact opposite attitude, condemning violence rather than sex
(I know, from personal experience, that most films rated NC-17 in the
US are usually classified "15" or "16" in Europe, while excessive
violence tends to lead to an "18").
As someone wisely says in this hilarious, poignant opus, ratings don't
really matter. If it's a film a lot of people want to see, no rating in
the world can damage it. If it's a film few people want to see, then no
rating in the world will save it. That might be true (although I don't
necessarily agree: the huge success of The Passion of the Christ was
largely due to the rating controversies), but this movie also made me
realize that I would definitely not want to be a member of the MPAA.
Their criteria are too weird for normal people to understand.
