A new form of film classification
I cannot remember all of the film categories but I was reminded of the system's inadequacies by an item on a 'Today' programme, last week.
I was very taken with the very much wider classification proposed. These are some of the categories, as I recall:
Unreal romantic content. This category draws to your attention that ugly little men, e.g. Woody Allen and (especially) Norman Wisdom, are unlikely, in real life, to get the (attractive, yea even beautiful) girl.I suspect we could make up our own categories. Much more useful than 'Contains sex and violence', I feel.
