MPAA Ratings Chief Defends Movie Ratings | Film Rating Systems | Scoop.it
The following article is from the current issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine available on newsstands now. Subscribers can read the issue here.
Justin Reed's insight:

The MPAA defended its job to deem what is appropriate for children to watch. They idealogically feel as though they can empathize with what the average american parent would feel is appopriate for their child and doesnt see their ratings as a form of censorship. More as a general thought process that if you want to play the game you have to play by the rules.

Documentary: This Film Is Not Yet Rated

Documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick launches an incendiary, full-frontal assault on the Motion Picture Association of America’s Classification and Ratings Administration (a.k.a. the MPAA’s CARA). This is the entity that assigns ratings to movies — the familiar G, PG, PG-13, R, and NC-17 designations. The film rating system in this country is governed by a secret panel created by the major film studios more than 35 years ago. Since its inception the MPAA ratings board has functioned as a sort of ‘black box’ where movies go in one end and a rating comes out the other, with absolutely no transparency or public accountability of the process. This secret, unregulated organization wields considerable power over the film industry and operates, the filmmaker asserts, on a highly subjective and prejudicial basis.

Justin Reed's insight:

The MPAA is run by a "secret society" of people who are ultimately responsible for "deciding whats appopriate for america to watch" but in reality push a secret form of censorship towards hollywood filmmakers.
