The film was rated "X" by the MoralGuardians for ''political content'' on its release (the film contains little sexual content or swearing), the first film to do so (swiftly followed by ''MidnightCowboy''); thus making the title reference all the more meaningful.

Interestingly, when the film was first scripted, it wasn't intended to be about the [[NewAgeRetroHippie Movement]] versus TheMan at all. The director wanted to shoot a piece [[ShakyCam in docu-cam]] about the indifference of the media towards the problems of the poor in inner-city Chicago, focusing on [[DecoyProtagonist an Appalachian family]].[[labelnote:*]]Chicago and Baltimore once had large Appalachian slums.[[/labelnote]] After all, [[CivilRightsMovement Martin Luther King]] was promising a major march on poverty in lieu of racism that LongHotSummer, similar to his March on Washington in '63, to urge the next administration (which [[WhatMightHaveBeen he hoped would be RFK]]) to take the money from TheVietnamWar and use it to re-fund Great Society programs.

* RealitySubtext: The director considered ending the film at MLK's planned Poverty March on Washington in 1968 and have it be how [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing the media will only cover violence]]. Then MLK got shot. Then the director was told about the Chicago demonstration by the people the actors were interviewing for the film. Then RFK got shot...
