When focused, `Rated' does the job it sets out to do

Review B-

September 22, 2006|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,Sun Movie Critic

This Film Is Not Yet Rated performs a great service, though not especially well.

The service is shining a light on the Motion Picture Association of America and its ratings board, a klatch of anonymous men and women who essentially dictate what Americans are allowed to see in the movies and where they're allowed to see it. For that alone, director Kirby Dick deserves a vote of thanks.

This Film Is Not Yet Rated (IFC Films) Documentary by Kirby Dick. Unrated. Time 97 minutes.
