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

Not much hazing. You just accept your Delta Tau Chi name, like Dorfman and Stork did, which is provided by the Sergeant at Arms (me). Plus    DTXbro on Dec 02, 01:10

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
