Film classification now to include pretentiousness rating

film classification

For the first time, the British Board of Film Classification will be required to assess and label the level of pretentiousness of any film before it can be shown in cinemas.

In addition to sex, violence and drug use, viewers will now be warned if a film contains unnaturally slow dialogue, meaningless pauses, characters looking sadly into the middle distance, or endings in mid-air that don’t resolve any of the questions set up earlier.

This will lead to an entirely new system of classification. In addition to being graded by age, films will now be rated BUI (a Bit Up Itself), THNGB (Three Hours you’ll Never Get Back) or NLF (suitable only for North Londoners and the French).
