Requiem for a Dream

NPR's Bob Mondello reviews Requiem for a Dream which opens in New York today without a rating, but with a theater-enforced ban on viewers under 17 years of age. The producers are protesting a rating of NC-17 from the Motion Picture Association due to the sex in the film. The producers claim the industry is over-reacting to election rhetoric. Even seasoned movie critics, however, find the sex hard to watch.
