10 years of Flick Filosopher: ‘South Park’ sticks it to the man
Trey Parker and Matt Stone are heroes of the culture wars in my book. From my review of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut:
If there was ever an organization that deserved a middle finger hoisted spectacularly in its direction, it is the MPAA. This is the group that has determined that sex and profanity are nastier than violence, and so rates movies accordingly. Just look at the rating that South Park received: “Rated R for pervasive vulgar language and crude sexual humor, and for some violent images.” This movie contains some of the most violent concepts and depictions you’ll find in recent films (even if they are in crudely animated form), but it’s the language and the sex that’s really offensive to the MPAA.
That South Park the show continues today to find targets ripe for its satire says as much about the asininity of the world we live in as it does about the genius of Parker and Stone.
