In the opening scene, a man and woman are shown having sex with sounds and movement, though no nudity is shown. When they are interrupted, the woman's bare legs are shown as she puts on her dress. The interruption: a man threatening a woman with knife. She is in a nightgown like dress, and he is shirtless. This takes place in the brothel.

Prostitutes and a brothel are a constant presence throughout the film. The women are seen in nightgowns and revealing dress, and some of the men who are customers are seen flirting, and getting dressed after offscreen sex. One man is seen buckling his belt, another putting his boots on.

Some sexual dialogue is present including slang terms for genitalia and subtle references to masturbation. A prostitute offers the main character a "free one" and says that others of her trade have been giving his friends free ones too (the character declines).

Many scenes are shot in dark lighting, making the blood less visible.

A prostitute is cut several times in the face (with bloody results) until a man holds a gun to the head of the attacker.

Two brutal beatings. The first one slightly more violent than the other. In both, the victims' faces are bloody.

A man's face is seen bloodied for some time.

A large gun fight occurs in a bar lots of men killed with some bloody results e.g. a man is shot in the neck blood clouds, a man is shot in the back blood sprays and so on. You see the aftermath of the shootout with a brief close up of a man covered in blood.

A man shoots a wounded man moaning in pain(bloody).

A man is shot in the head with a shotgun (heard but not seen).

A man is whipped on the back (bloody scrapes are briefly visible). We are later told this man died (off-screen) and further on we see his body outside the saloon twice (with a little blood on the shirt).

William has a slightly bloody nose after his horse throws him.

A horse is shot. The rider has an offscreen broken leg and is shot once in the stomach afterwards with a bloody bullet wound and some blood shown on his hands.

A man is killed by a few shots to the chest (bloody). His friends pursue the attacker and shoot back.

A man shoots another man as retaliation for decorating the bar with a body (a large bloody bullet wound is briefly seen as he flies backwards from the force of the blast).

A man morosely describes his past killings, sometimes in graphic detail.

About a dozen uses of sh*t, 10 of f**k, and half a dozen of wh*re and son of a b*tch. Many uses of milder language including the use of "God." "for Chr*st's sake" and some slang words for genitalia are used ("c*nty," "pecker"), as well as a reference to masturbation.

Various people drink whiskey throughout the film.

William stops in a saloon where he ends up getting drunk.

At two points, a man attacks two men brutally in the name of "justice". Both are shown significantly injured afterwards.

The attack on the prosititute may disturb some viewers. Some characters talk about it and add more gruesome, but untrue details to the story.

A man is whipped and threatened by another man. We later hear this man died off-screen.

A man hallucinates and speaks about seeing men he's killed with graphic detail.

Rated R for language, and violence, and for a scene of sexuality
