Censorship in Cinema

By now, many of you should be familiar with the ineptitude and inconsistency that comes from the ratings systems that has been created by the Motion Picture Association of America. If you're not, watch the documentary This Film is Not Yet Rated, and then come back. Because right now we're going to look at the long history of censorship on film, and how the MPAA's rating system has become a subtle part of censoring films that the general audience isn't really aware of. A new video from CineFix dives into the progression of sex and violence in film and how the censorship of those elements has changed over the years. Watch!

Here's A$$, ( . )( . ), and GUNS: Censorship in Cinema from CineFix (via SlashFilm):

As CineFix notes, "Is the X rating really just censorship in disguise? Why can movies show as much violence as they want and still merit an R, but not so much with the sex? We’ll take you back to the earliest days of cinema, and show you how ratings in Hollywood (and Hollywood’s home country, the U.S. of A.) got to the point they are today." What do you think about the MPAA's rating system? Is this censorship in disguise?
