Storyline

Dozens of Utah DVD retailers attracted unwanted attention from Hollywood heavyweights when, in the name of conservative family values, they began sanitizing films of sex, nudity, profanity, and violence. Outraged over the unauthorized editing of their work, prominent filmmakers began to speak out, thrusting the two groups into an intense legal, theoretical, and moral battle that would last six years before coming to a shocking conclusion.

An Interesting look at the Movie Industry
28 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you go looking on Netflix there are some more obscure documentary movies you probably haven't heard of. I ran into this movie called "CleanFlix." There were these movie rental places in Utah such as Cleanflix where you could get edited movies. There were Mormon's out there that wanted clean version's of R Movies and PG-13 Movies that didn't have all the sex or so much violence. Eventually the movie studio's took notice of this and forced all these rental places to shut down.

I thought this movie was interesting. It shows you a different side of the movie industry, Apparently these directors can take their artistic work very seriously. You are also not suppose to edit and resell those movies because then you are violating copyright laws. You had these people editing movies because they saw a market for it. There are people out there who cannot watch movies with any violence, sex or foul language in them. They filled this void by offering clean versions of movies. This movie does show you what many Mormon's believe in but mostly it shows you what happened to Cleanflix. I would recommend watching this movie. It's an interesting look at Mormon's, The Movie Industry and Copyright Laws.
