The MPAA, Our Delicate Sensibilities, and Censorship
You'll excuse me if I say that this is fucking unbelievable. The MPAA seems animated by a desire to avoid offending anyone's political sensibilities. Let's set aside the sort of violent crap many kids encounter every single day on video games and TV and in movies. The filmmakers are quite clearly correct that treating their films like horror movies instead of like documentaries is a massive, idiotic category mistake. What parents in the U.S. ought to be scared about is not that their kids might see this poster; what parents should fear is that their sons and daughters might ask them "what did you do while the President was telling soldiers to torture innocent people?"*
