We briefly see a man receiving oral sex from a woman. No Nudity of any sort.

It is implied that two characters sleep together (they wake up in bed together, although fully clothed).

Two people are seen having sex, although hidden under a large blanket. We see rear nudity from both the man and woman.

A woman wears a dress that shows a lot of cleavage.

The "graphic sex scene" is not actually very graphic at all.

There are many shootings throughout the film, some showing bloody entry wounds.

A man is shot in the chest and bleeds profusely for the duration of the film.

A man tries to remove a bullet from another man's chest with a knife.

A man has his throat slit.

In what is perhaps the film's most graphic scene, a dead man's head is crushed beneath the boot of another and his head completely caves in.

There is a good deal of cursing, including the F and S words. There are also many racial slurs used towards Native Americans.11 F words or derivatives, 24 GDs, 8 exclamations of jesus and 6 christ.

Characters are seen drinking at the beginning of the film and a character is constantly asked if he has any tobacco, although he doesn't smoke. Referrences to peyote.

Rated R for moments of strong violence, a graphic sex scene and some language
