What is NC-17?
This site is designed to provide information on NC-17 films ... movies for the mature audience. Over the years, it has been observed that it is very difficult to create and market adult movies with NC-17 ratings; some newspapers refuse to carry advertising for them; some theaters refuse to run them, etc. (although perhaps that is beginning to change). We hope to provide information and resources at this site for those who are interested in seeing and promoting "movies for the mature audience."

A list of most NC-17 rated films:

* Please note, it isn't pornography. So keep the discussions mature.

Wanna enlighten yourself? Look up this documentary:

So, what are your favorite NC-17 films?

Great documentary. It really shows that MPAA is one big fuckery. They've tried to fuck up things for a lot of great filmmakers.

Some of my favorite NC-17 films include:

Lust, Caution
Happiness
Requiem for a Dream
Mysterious Skin
Last Tango in Paris
Kids

Im 20 and have never seen an NC-17 film. Is there that much difference between R and NC-17? I mean some R rated movies are pretty gory, violent, risque.

Have yet to see these two, although they're the ones that frequently pop up in conversations about NC-17 films (plus Pink Flamingos). Gonna get them soon.

I also thought there wasn't much of a difference until I saw that documentary. If you can, really watch it. It just opened my eyes at just how restrictive Hollywood is on the rating system.

From what I know now, there's a very steep difference between R and NC-17. Arguably, the NC-17 rating exists primarily because of the explicit sexual content and nudity.

Just finished watching 'Kids'. Some really eye-opening stuff, holy crap. Especially the rape scene in the end, with the sleeping kid on the same couch. Jesus...

I remember it made an impact on me when I watched it for the first time as a kid. It's a movie that stays with you.

It was my first time watching it, and I'm 19. This still surprised the hell outta me. I can't imagine the controversy it must've caused, with the child pornography scenes and everything...

While I understand wanting to keep children away from explicit content, NC-17 films should become more of the norm in theaters. That's not to say that directors should feature tons of unnecessary sex, but directors shouldn't have to play by the MPAA's rules. They should feature whatever content they want in their films, and just release it - similar to what musicians do. And honestly, what's the difference between R & NC-17? One year? That's absolute bullshit, and theaters are ridiculous for not showing them.
