I've been trying to find out what makes a DVD Unrated vs. NC-17 or R. I
select media for a large library district and have recently come across
DVD's released as both R and UN, sometimes on one disc. We are trying to
decide whether to purchase Unrated movies that were originally released as R
in the theatre. Do other libraries purchase these? Have you found the
content to be inappropriate? What are your thoughts on UN movies?

I'm not talking foreign films or chidlren's films that often have no rating,
but movies that were originally released in theatres as rated and then come
out on DVD in an UN version. * Forgetting Sarah Marshall* and *The Strangers
* are examples of this.

Thanks.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
