What The F*ck!!!

I saw the most revealing movie I'd ever thought I'd see last night - This Film is Not Yet Rated. It's made me re evaluate every thing I see on TV and in the movies because apparently what I've been seeing is most likely what the artists didn't originally intend for me to see. And why did I not see the artists' original product - oh well because a few unnamed anonymous folks sitting up in a fortified fortress decided that there was something or things in these movies that might be "detrimental" to children. I'm 35 years old and what I'm able to see is being controlled and most likely edited by unqualified people standing in judgement of modern culture. I am now furious that this organization, set up by an amazing con man - Jack Valenti, has a vice grip on the industry of film making. He convinced the boobs in Hollywood that they needed to get a ratings board in place because government was gonna try to censor and curtail the money making business that are the movies. He set up the MPAA and viola we now have the wonderful child protecting ratings. I never cared much about the ratings only that I wasn't ever interested in anything that was G, PG or maybe even PG 13 and that was from age 15 I was pretty much done with G rated films. What I didn't know was that ratings like NC-17 can cripple a film and stiffle its opportunities to be advertised, seen or even distributed. Any organization with that much power should be transparent, especially when you're not dealing with the security of the first world. The MPAA members are 2nd in secrecy to members of the CIA - damn and before this film, they managed to leak Valerie Plame's identity! Most of the folks don't have small kids and seem to be completely out of tune and devoid of any shred of cultural relativity. No wonder that most of the shit that comes out in the movie theatres is such inane drivel, absolute bullshit. When you've non movie makers and basically non artists suggesting re edits and sticking their stilted opinions where they have no business sticking them, no wonder there is nothing but shit coming out at a theatre near you. Its also scary the folks behind the gatekeeping are none other than big studios and media companies, I wonder what other information they might control - hummm maybe the news perhaps. This is why you have to dig deep go underground and cull for information and in the end the truth that seems to've taken the back burner these last days.
Watching this film it just brought to mind the repressive governments of China and East Germany where everyone is spying and where any original or differential thoughts are snuffed out, where everything has to operate in the underground. All this in a democracy that's trying to ship democracy around the world any doing a great job, especially in Iraq - ha ha ha

I'm dying to see this one, but in my little corner of the world I'll definitely have to wait for DVD .. The MPAA is clearly made of sexually repressed idiots
