Also keep in mind, that not having a rating doesn't mean it would have
been an "X" - I've heard library staff voice this misconception all too

My library does not purchase X rated films. Not sure its written in stone

We rely heavily on reviews and the good taste of the selector!!

FYI keep in mind most smaller companies like Kino, Milestone , New Yorker
etc that specialize in foreign and documentaries do not have ratings on
their films
