Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this film uses violence, blood, and gore -- along with graphic sex and drug use -- to make the point that, in one character's words, "anybody can do anything to anyone and get away with it." A man is stabbed in the face with a pen, a graphic sexual scene is intercut with scenes of a blood-covered man in excruciating pain, a nursing assistant must clean up the visible excrement of an elderly patient, a dog chews on the bloody leg of an incapacitated but conscious man, and so on. The language is similarly strong, with everything from "f--k" to "bulls--t" used frequently. In other words? Not for kids!
Nudity in several scenes includes breasts and full bodies in partial shadow. A fight occurs with one participating woman completely nude; lengthy intercourse sequence.
Very violent and bloody car accident in which a man's head crashes through the windshield; gory aftermath of accident is shown in scene after scene; point-blank gunfire; a woman is set ablaze and burns to death on camera; a man is stabbed in the face with a pen.
Cursing predominant throughout the movie. Language includes "f--k," "a--hole," "f--king," "s--t," "bulls--t." The opening scenes are accompanied by a rap song with explicit lyrics.
Amoral, monstrous behavior moves the plot from beginning to end. From the lowliest landlord in a sleazebag hotel to a suit-and-tie government bureaucrat, the characters have no moral compass. Cruelty, selfishness, and indifference consistently override common decency.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Drugs (Ecstasy, marijuana) used on several occasions. Characters drive while under the influence. A main character is a drug dealer. Alcohol is consumed in several scenes.
