LAT on marketing [SHAME]. Cinemark declined to book the film.   Antibody on Dec 01, 10:50

It's depressing how the stigma of NC-17 is so evident in the US. One of the reasons I'm glad I don't live there ;) {nm}   numbersix_99 on Dec 01, 11:54

not really. its more depressing that filmakers keep on trying to push the envelope by putting   Oleg Max on Dec 01, 12:02

I think the answer to that probably depends on the movie. It kind of sounds like in this movie, it was necessary. {nm}   Ruthian23 on Dec 01, 12:05

Disagree. The MPAA are Puritans that censor expressions of artful sexuality, while premitting violence. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 01, 12:12

both should be carefully reviewed.   Oleg Max on Dec 01, 12:34

How many NC-17 movies do they make, though? Not many. In fact, it's usually the other way. They make movies that might have been better    Ruthian23 on Dec 01, 13:04

Just my opinion, but strike one against the MPAA is that they are so secretive   DTravel on Dec 01, 14:07

Realistically as much as people don't want to talk about it, I think it comes down to what religious belief system you have as to whether or   accountant_4_Jesus on Dec 01, 14:45

Why is sex or nudity unsuitable? Your premise is absurd and self loathing. Your body isn't sinful! {nm}   tawdryhepburn on Dec 01, 13:35

Hey, tawdry, if you are a coed (or wife of a dean, or actually any female with such a refreshing outlook) you are cordially invited to a    DTXbro on Dec 01, 13:54

I'm a dude. And I managed to never set foot in a frat house during my undergraduate education (UCSB), but I'd just a digital one.   tawdryhepburn on Dec 01, 19:23

Like SHAME would make anything at a Cinemark anyway... {nm}   dsbman on Dec 01, 14:31

Marcus and Carmike Cinemas also refuse to book the film because of the rating. I talked to reps from both this week. {nm}   HarryWarden on Dec 01, 14:41
