As storyteller's and filmmakers, we all have a certain responsibility too Writing violence into a scene or choosing to shoot gunplay in super slo-mo etc. Too many times we glorify and sensationalize violence for the sake of "cool" rather than delving deeper into what it means and how it affects our audience. Using violence to escalate the stakes in a story is easy - maybe too easy Perhaps we need to work harder at finding more creative solutions to create conflict?
I knew someone was going to drag the Second Amendment into this discussion, and use it to berate American culture. Practically every country on the planet has censorship laws. Well it depends on whether you want to screen children from seeing sex and violence, or pay lip service to the cause while making money. Moreover, I don't think most in the industry versus the American public see the product they're producing as a problem for society in the first place.
What really gets me is how a PG13 movie can show people dying as long as it's not gory, so what the ratings system is saying is that it is okay to kill people as long as you look away when someone's brains get blown out. There is only one way to really protect kids from inappropriate media.
That is for the parents to take the time to pre-screen everything the kids are going to want to see, and then exercise parental authority over what they actually do get to see. Rating systems are only to be used as a very general guide, and even then you have to know something about the people doing the rating. It's insanely gruesome. Today that would result in an R rating, not even a PG! You can distribute a film in the US without a rating and for those filmmakers on very low or tight budgets not worth the while anyway. Like most people I wouldn't want to see the state getting involved if possible though the examples of many other countries demonstrate that this wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing - however in the US this would be done at the State level, not Federal, which would makes things worse , but what should happen, IMO, is that the MPAA should be as open about what they do and how they do it as possible I've understood the rule to be a film can use the F word a few times and garner a PG if and only if the uses are non-sexual.
So a "f'ing hell" is fine, but "f you" goes straight to R. No, you can say "fuck you," you can't say "let's fuck. It takes an in depth look into the MPAA and how corrupted they really are. To make "moral" assessments of films or anything , an individual has to have a "moral code" or basis for making such assessments.
In other words, he has to have a standard against which to compare and make evaluations. If that moral code is simply the product of an individual or group of individuals no matter how large , that code only carries authority to the degree that the individual or group has power to enforce it, but it carries no binding authority on the conscience of others, for man does not have the authority to rule another person's conscience.

This whole issue is summarized and answered in the phrase, "In the beginning time , God created the heavens space and the earth matter. That is, the moral code built into the very heart of man is based upon the very nature of his Creator. Films, therefore, should hold to what God has revealed as right parameters for speech, exposure, violence, etc. They should do so because we will all give account of ourselves to God one day.

The relationship was incorporated into the struggles of training for the games. The scenes were considered explicit at the time but they helped pave the way for other high profile lesbian scenes like the famous scenes in Bound and Mulholland Drive. Mickey Rourke played John, an enigmatic businessman who seduces art assistant Elizabeth Kim Basinger. It also has a memorable scene involving a refrigerator. It also opened up audiences to the idea of high profile erotic films like Basic Instinct and Body of Evidence.
It also helped establish more fair representations of gay men in cinema and did explore the issues facing homeless teens in the Pacific Northwest. European films are renowned for being able to push the envelope. However, this independent film brought that sexual freedom to American audiences. Holly Hunter plays a mute woman who engages in a romantic relationship with a local worker Harvey Keitel.
The film did not shy away from nudity of both Hunter and Keitel and also uses the vehicle of sex to explore their relationship. The film did work for audiences as it won three Oscars including, one for Hunter and one for a young Anna Paquin. Regardless of opinions, this film changed the way we see sex and nudity in films. It was notable for being released under the controversial NC rating but that only boosted interest in the film. It also features the squeaky clean TV favorite Elizabeth Berkley getting into some very graphic sexual exploits.
The film helped to establish the commercial viability for films rated NC
