I remember liking it a lot.Ran across an older documentary - available free on YouTube -
"This Movie Is Not Yet Rated..."
It's about the MPAA movie rating system. goes into how movie ratings are issued. Definitely has a point of view - criticizing the system for being arbitrary on how some movies get an R or an NC-17 and other movies get less restrictive ratings. Apparently they don't like sexual content - that is much more likely to get the NC-17 as opposed to gore or violence.
The other big point is that the people on the board who actually watch movies and issue the ratings are kept secret - their identities are not disclosed and they all sign non-disclosure agreements so that they can't talk about it when they leave the board. So the director of the documentary actually hired private investigators to try and find out who these people are.
If you have 90 minutes to kill, worth watching if you're a movie buff.
