Y Tu Mama Tambien, a movie about two economists

Y Tu Mama Tambien (2001).
Why did Alfonso Cuaron return to Mexico to make it?

Because he has something to say about Mexico, obviously,
and also because Jack Valenti and the MPAA have made it
impossible for a movie like this to be produced in America.
It is a perfect illustration of the need for a workable adult
rating: too mature, thoughtful and frank for the R, but
not in any sense pornographic.

Why do serious film people not rise up in rage and tear
down the rating system that infantilizes their work?

-- Roger Ebert.
