Trailer Blazer: Three new documentaries

93838__al_lThis Film Is Not Yet Rated (Sept. 1) Right from the opening ratings information, you can see there’s a cheeky sense of humor informing this documentary about the enigmatic MPAA. Not only does it boast an awesome set of interview subjects — Kevin Smith, Maria Bello, John Waters, Kimberly Peirce, and Matt Stone, among others, discuss the perils of an NC-17 label, and the folks who administer them — but the little details, like the observation that ”there’s absolutely no way of going in” to the MPAA headquarters, raises this to must-see status for me.

Al Franken: God Spoke (Sept. 13) Here’s a film whose political slant seems to be right up my alley, and yet, the trailer looks surprisingly static and unamusing. Am I the only one who thinks this preview should be Rated Meh?

Jesus Camp (Sept. 15) And here I thought American Idol was the only thing that moved the kids to tears anymore. Seriously, though, this probing look at the evangelical youth movement taps into a culture that’s pretty foreign to me, which might be why I’m alternately skittish and excited about seeing it.

    NC-17 is just another way of saying soft-core porn.
    Most NC-17 movies have a lot of female nudity and bad acting minus the serious hard core sex scenes. There have been a few decent films which have been rated NC-17 like All About Adam with Tilda Swenton or the movie with the two comedians who find a dead women in their hotel room, but that is about it.
    Basically it is a lot cheaper to watch skinamax for the soft core stuff.

    Ok..I’m a Christian and that trailer for Jesus Camp still freaked me out a little bit

    Clerks and the Southpark movie didn’t have any nudity in them, but the mpaa still tried to slap an NC-17 on them.

    WOW!!!
    Not too many people willing to make a “stab” at this one, eh?
    First off, the MPAA’s inception (1968) gave us an immediate influx of X rated, mainstream movies:
    Midnight Cowboy
    Last Tango in Paris
    A Clockwork Orange
    Of course, by today’s standards, I think they’ve all been “demoted” to an “R” status, but we did see an increase in risque films at that time. I suppose that Caligula (1979) could also be included with the above mentioned films, however, Mr. Guccione’s amateur editing guaranteed its status as simply a “porno” made by a an indulgent publisher with “A List” actors.
    Currently, we have The Dreamers, Where The Truth Lies, and Inside Deep Throat as entries to the NC-17 mainstream family (I will not include Baise-Moi, as the French sometimes overdo it deliberately (IMHO) with both dialogue and nudity.
    I’m not sure if we’ll ever see a truly hardcore mainstream film (now that Kubrick’s passed), but who knows. There may be an “edgy” director out there somewhere who can give us something “more” that we could call deserved of an Oscar (or even an 8 plus score on the IMDB).

    The issue is that the MPAA is deciding what adults may or may not see when they go out to the movies. Theaters won’t schedule NC-17 movies because newspapers and TV won’t advertise them, because moralistic nutjobs threaten to boycott.
