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.

More Than Meets the Eye
20 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a small Utah-based edited movie company is caught sanitizing Hollywood's copyrighted material, the film industry strikes back with a devastating blow.

For those who do not understand Mormons and Donny Osmond, they may appear ignorant from this film. Most of us freely watch violent or profane movies without much thought (indeed, this documentary has nudity and violence). But think about them like you would the MPAA -- just as we have a censor that wants to keep things R rather than NC-17, they just want to take it a step further.

Daniel Thompson, featured prominently in this film, is a sketchy and dirty character who was allegedly involved in theft and clearly had the motive of profit rather than purity. He rubbed me the wrong way from the first scene, and therefore it was no surprise to me when it turned out he was arrested for statutory rape in March 2008 and running a pornographic business from his store.

The focus on Thompson is what makes this story worthwhile. The fight of editing versus copyright is a great tale... but then when you throw in this twist, it gets even better.
