Lust, Caution too lusty?

A post on Hollywood Elsewhere reported today that Ang Lee's espionage thriller Lust, Caution has been rated NC-17 in the United States for "explicit sexuality". That means that no children under 17 may be admitted, period. Apparently, the producer and the studio aren't even planning to appeal the rating (which is what they usually do, because NC-17 tend to kill all commercial appeal), meaning that they know they're guilty as charged.

With that rating in America, it's likely that the film will receive similar ratings around the world, which means I won't have to watch the film with a bunch of Wang Leehom fan girls. What a ballsy move by Ang Lee.
