SEX/NUDITY 6 - We see a group of nude people (men and women) sitting around
exposing bare breasts and chests and legs. We see a man on his hands and knees, presumably
in a shower, shaking and moaning (the implication is that a man is having sex with him
although we don't see anyone else). A man describes having had sex with a woman who tried
to penetrate him with her finger. A man describes having been accosted by another man.
There are discussions of a woman having been involved in pornography, and a story is
recounted about a group of people being involved in an orgy. A woman dances suggestively
and then kisses a man. A man and woman kiss romantically several times in several scenes.
We hear a pornographic movie with moaning. A man sits on a bed nude (we see his profile
and no private parts are shown). A man urinates in a toilet (very loudly) and then onto a
carpet. A man is shown, in an extended scene, poolside in a Speedo and he places a cold
washcloth on his crotch. We see a man in his underwear and a group of men in bathing
VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man is shot in the abdomen with a shotgun and we see a
huge bloody wound; this scene is revisited several times and we hear the man gurgling and
yelling in pain. A man is shot at close range and we see him covered with blood. A man is
shot in the head and falls dead to the ground. A man holds a heavy metal box over a man
and brings it down, although we don't see it hit the man. A man punches a wounded man
repeatedly and two women hit and kick him (we see his very bloody face and hear him
yelling). A man hits another man in the head with a bottle which breaks and we see blood
running down his head and face. A boy is hit in the face with a rifle butt, and a man is
punched in the stomach. A hairy man-beast with horns appears in a few scenes (in dream or
daydream sequences); twice he carries and points a gun at a man and once he tears down a
wooden wall revealing a man inside. A man barges into a bedroom where a man and woman are
asleep in bed and he yells at the man and punches him in the face. A boulder rolls down a
hill and crashes into a pool, nearly crushing a man. A man threatens to put a cigarette out
in a man's eye and a man is threatened with a gun. There are several yelling matches with
lots of name-calling. We see a woman with a large scar on her arm.
