This Film is Not Yet Rated (2006) is a documentary that critiques the current MPAA ratings board.  The film does this by looking at how the board has censored various movies.  The overall thrust of this film is to point out how the MPAA ratings board disservices filmmakers and promotes social inequalities.

For example, some of the key findings of the film were that sex is more censored than violence and that homosexual sex is much more likely to be censored than heterosexual sex.  One of the most shocking findings was that the MPAA ratings board employs high-ranking members of religious organizations to help make decisions about ratings appeals.
