Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this animated science fiction film includes frequent discussions of drugs, both real (cocaine) and not (something called Substance D). Addicts, dealers, and cops lie to each other and lament their loss of trust and community. Characters also drink and smoke cigarettes. A sex scene shows a woman's naked body (including exposed breasts) during the act, which is fairly explicit. There is rough language and some gritty images, incuding a drug addict imagining himself being shot in the head, and another throwing up while being admitted to an alleged rehab center.
(All animated): Breasts visible, sexual activity explicit and brief; young men discuss sex with a woman.
Addict imagines bug attack, then a shooting in the head (brief, brutal image); various falls and threats made by paranoid drug users; the central drug is said to destroy brains.
Frequent language: multiple f-words (over 30); slightly fewer s-words; some creative permutations of obscenities ("freckle-d---").
Drug users and dealers, undercover cops (narcs) and organization/city officials all lie to betray one another. Police are brutal.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Frequent cigarette smoking; "drug epidemic" drives the plot (the drug severs brain hemispheres); characters sell and purchase drugs, smoke cigarettes (cigarette butts fill several ashtrays), drink liquor, discuss and name drugs (cocaine, for example).
