Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is meant for mature audiences only, and they may want to think twice about letting kids watch. Some older teens may be able to handle the violence, emotional distress, and questionable situations. The premise centers on the deeds of a drug dealer. The majority of the characters swear repeatedly. Almost every main character is placed in some kind of questionable situation (quasi-pedophilia, assault). Additionally, the film's New York setting and content evoke the memory of September 11th.
- Sexual Content
- Adults lusting after high school girls. Partial nudity (couple bathing together).
- The film begins by showing a badly beaten dog and goes from there. It includes a murder and a very graphic beating of the main character.
- A lot of swearing both casually and in anger. Extended bigoted diatribe.
- Social Behavior
- The main character is a convicted drug dealer; however, he feels remorse, is incredibly reflective about his life, and shows kindness and compassion for others. Almost every character has a major flaw, whether lusting for teenage girls, greed, or alcoholism, but these characters also reek of compassion and remorse for their own actions.
