Sex & Nudity


Quite a few mentions of rape. Some kissing. Some of the characters hang around a bar, which also maintains sex workers. A man dances the Tango with a woman. Some of the movements can be interpreted as erotic. A topless woman is shown briefly getting into a pool. The nudity is seen by us for maybe a second. That is the only example of female objectification shown. The mother of one of the main characters was raped. It isn't seen on-screen, but a flashback scene takes the viewer to moments before.

Violence & Gore


On a movie set, cowboys are shot with no blood. On another film shoot, several hoodlums get shot by the police. One of which has blood splotched on his mouth as he dies. A woman is killed offscreen by a knife to the back; mild blood is smeared on the wall, the victim and drizzled on the murder weapon. A man has a frying pan slapped in his face, resulting in a pretty bloody nose. Likewise, blood can be seen on the floor and his hand. A climatic shootout with bloody results. Some fist-fighting.
