I've been intending to watch "This Film is Not Yet Rated" for a while now, but it has yet to appear on Blockbuster online, which amuses me at the same time it annoys me.

it isn't and it won't be. Funny thing about Blockbuster is that they are basically slaves to the MPAA. They won't carry NC-17 rated films. Initially the film was turned over to the MPAA and the MPAA rated it NC-17 "for some graphic sexual content." (there are clips of other movies when they are discussing why movies get rated NC-17). Of course, its probably more likely that they gave it an NC-17 out of spite because a large part of the documentary is not only saying how stupid the MPAA is, but stalking its members. He appealed the rating and lost, was told it could be reedited and rerated, so instead he editted in footage about being given the NC-17 rating and losing the appeal, surrendered his rating and released it unrated. As such, it doesn't fit Blockbuster's corporate standards and practices and will never be offered there. I've heard that it is available in some random Blockbuster stores that don't care as much as corporate does, but the website is run by corporate, so it won't be there.
