This thread comes from two recent discussions I had 1. With my kids about the ongoing discussion about waiting until they are older to watch a specific film. My opinion is that it is not that they are necessarily too young to see a film but that it would be a shame for them to see a film they won't truly appreciate. 2. At work I mentioned that, as teenagers, a buddy and I snuck into a showing of A Clockwork Orange. Upon leaving, we both agreed that we weren't ready for it. If I were to answer the question of why, it's a bit more difficult. I guess that I remember dwelling on the language of the film (particularly the lingo "righty right") and didn't really get the issues at play within the film. So the question is what film did you see that you wished you had waited until you were older to see? And Why?
