MPAA Rated R for language and some scenes of violence

Sex & Nudity

  • It is implied that a couple has sex but there is nothing shown at all, and they are seen waking up the next morning.
  • A comment about "the noise from the newlywed couple next door", or something along those lines, but just a side-comment, nothing that is emphasized.
  • Mild sexual noises are heard from the room next door and a character has his ear glued to the wall to listen.

Violence & Gore

  • One character is found dead in bed, with a lot of blood seen on the sheets. This is a fairly long scene.
  • Another character is shot in the chest with some blood, but this is brief.
  • One off-screen killing where a serial killer puts a shotgun to a man's head and a shot is heard. Before this he has shot this man in the ankle to stop him from running away. Again, there is some blood, but it is very brief.
  • A man is punched in the face, but it isn't in any way serious.


  • Because it is set in the "fast-talking" business world of the 30's and 40's, mild language is used throughout, including the d-word, h-word, and variations of God's name. Three f-words used toward the end by some rude detectives. When a character is punched there is a brief exclaimation of "what the f-"
  • Mainly mild language; there is very little language that would warrant higher than a PG-13, and there is no sexual dialogue.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Casual drinking and smoking, considering the time it represents, but it is hardly noticeable because it is not emphasized.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The story is dark and surreal, and toward the end some twists make it suspenseful and intense.
