This Film Is Not Yet Rated
Time Out says
Point made with wit and verve, Dick then questions the anonymity granted to the MPAA’s LA-based panel of raters (all the MPAA will reveal is that they are parents – which should itself set alarm bells ringing) and embarks on a flippant mission to uncover their identities with the help of a likeable duo of private investigators. It’s here that Dick engages the spirit of ‘Supersize Me’ and lets flag any further serious analysis of exactly why the ‘NC-17’ rating is such a death-knell for independent filmmakers such as Pierce and Waters (although perhaps that’s more obvious to American viewers). Dick’s tabloid tactics – stalking the offices of the MPAA, rummaging through bins – are a fun diversion but obscure deeper analysis. Still, his own, final tussle with the MPAA and its Appeals Board is a neat and illuminating coup.
