Ever since we could show things on film, there have been people protesting that “You can’t show THAT on film!” The result is the long and complicated history of censorship in Hollywood.

Using a mix of white board animation and some eye raising (but disguised) footage, the latest episode of Cinefix's Film School'd series takes you back to the earliest days of cinema, and shows you how ratings in Hollywood and the US got to the point they are today.

In a very clever move, the producers at Cinefix have created a dynamic video that not only covers the debate but demonstrates it.

Is the X rating really just censorship in disguise? Why can movies show as much violence as they want and still merit an R, but not so much with the sex?
